Updated 13 July.

Perth and Peel regions have now returned to pre-COVID life.

WA remains in a State of Emergency. Some important measures remain in place to help keep WA safe.

Capacity limits

  • There are no longer any capacity restrictions for venues and events. This means private gatherings, concerts, sporting games, and weddings can go ahead at full capacity.
  • Measures remain in place to keep these events safe:
  • Businesses require a COVID Safety Plan and must maintain a contact register.
  • Events with more than 500 patrons are required to complete a COVID Event Checklist or Plan.

Safe WA app

  • You can help keep WA safe by checking in at businesses and venues using SafeWA, or by leaving your details on a contact register.

Aged Care

To help protect people in aged care, family members can visit residents, but some additional restrictions are in place. You should not visit if you have:

  • returned from overseas in the last 14 days
  • been informed you are a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • not had an up-to-date influenza vaccination
  • symptoms, including:
  1. fever
  2. recent history of fever
  3. symptoms of acute respiratory infection (eg. shortness of breath, cough, sore throat)
  4. loss of smell or taste

Additionally, quarantine centre workers must wear a face mask and keep 1.5 metres away from other people when visiting residential aged care facilities. 

Remote Aboriginal Communities

Check the Remote Aboriginal communities travel page before travelling through remote areas in WA.

  • There are strict travel restrictions in place for travel to some remote Aboriginal communities, more vulnerable to COVID-19 than other Western Australians. It’s important to plan your trip to help navigate through remote areas and avoid entering restricted areas.

Western Australians are reminded to register their contact details via the SafeWA app or written contact registers at businesses and venues where contact registers are mandatory.

The SafeWA app and written contact registers are vital tools for health contact tracers to more efficiently identify people that may have been exposed to the virus, helping reduce the potential of a wide-spread outbreak.
