Cautious easing of social restrictions in WA
Posted: April 28th, 2020
Following continued low numbers of new cases of COVID-19 coronavirus in WA, from Monday 27 April 2020 some stage 3 restrictions have been relaxed. This cautious easing of restrictions will help families and friends to stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Indoor and outdoor non-work gatherings of up to 10 people are now allowed at:
- weddings and funerals
- outdoor personal training (no shared equipment)
- home opens and display village inspections
If a single household has more than 10 people, that household remains exempt from this new rule. All public playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor gym equipment are to remain closed, along with other restrictions previously implemented to minimise the spread of COVID 19 in the community.
It is still very important that people follow the guidance on social distancing which includes keeping a distance of 1.5 meters from others, and minimising unnecessary contact. WA remains in a State of Emergency and so various restrictions are still enforceable by fines.
