We are back in business WA
Big news today for thousands of WA venues: this Wednesday Western Australia will proceed to Phase 5 of eased restrictions, and remove all COVID-related capacity limits.
That means that all venues will be allowed to return to 100% of their pre-COVID capacity, and all major events will be able to occur with no limit on size or crowds.
Venues will still be required to maintain contact registers and use the SafeWA app and have COVID Safety Plans in place. COVID Event Plans will also still be required for major events.
This change follows updated health advice, and means that Western Australia will continue to lead the way in having some of the lightest restrictions in the world.
It’s another big step, and it will mean a lot to many local businesses who’ve worked hard to keep going through challenging conditions over the past 15 months.
Our controlled interstate border, and the international hard border, will remain in place – and are once again essential for allowing us to ease these restrictions within our State.
While we’re confident that we can safely take this step, it’s crucial that Western Australians continue to do the right thing, so that if COVID-19 does make its way into our State we remain ready.
That means exercising good personal hygiene, signing in when you visit a venue, staying home if you are unwell and getting tested if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
It’s also crucial that every Western Australian gets vaccinated when they are eligible – it remains our best way out of this pandemic.
This is an exciting step for our State – and is only possible because of everyone’s hard work throughout this pandemic.
Once again: thank you WA.
