The roadmap is the State Government's four-phased plan to safely get Western Australians back to work, social and recreational activities, and continue to restart WA's economy.
Phase 3 can be introduced from June 6 due to the success in limiting community transmission of COVID-19 in WA during Phase 2, and on the advice of the Chief Health Officer and State Emergency Coordinator.
As part of Phase 3, Western Australia will be the first State in the nation to implement a two square metre per person capacity rule for venues, replacing the previous four square metre rule, which is the current national advice.
Western Australians must continue to practice physical distancing and good personal hygiene at all times.
Phase 3 will come into effect from Saturday, June 6 (11.59pm Friday, June 5). It includes:
Large community sporting facilities or wildlife parks that can accommodate more than 300 patrons, while allowing for two square metres per patron, may be able to apply for an exemption to the 300 patron limit through wa.gov.au for a decision by the Chief Health Officer.
Travel will now be permitted throughout Western Australia, including into the Kimberley region, pending the Commonwealth's approval to remove the Biosecurity Area on June 5. Access into remote Aboriginal communities will remain prohibited.
WA businesses are reminded that they must submit a COVID Safety Plan, prior to reopening, to ensure they mitigate the risk of COVID-19, in line with health advice. Premises that opened during Phase 2 should update their COVID Safety Plans accordingly.
Phase 4 will be finalised in the coming weeks, based on the advice from the Chief Health Officer and will take into account the impact of Phase 3 in the WA community.
As per the advice from the Chief Health Officer, Western Australia's hard border with the rest of Australia will remain in place.
