COVID-19 UPDATES

Current as of 29 July 2020

As you may be aware, the WA Government has released a six-phase roadmap to to carefully ease COVID-19 restrictions .

Phase 4 of the roadmap commenced on Saturday 27 June and saw several significant changes such as the removal of all existing gathering limits and the 100/300 rule or gathering limits only determined by WA’s reduced 2sqm rule.

Depending on infection rates locally, Phase 5 is planned to be introduced on Saturday, 15 August  2020  and will result in the removal of the 2sqm rule and the 50 percent capacity for our major venues.
