COVID19 ANNOUNCEMENT – Restrictions until 12 July



𝗔𝗡𝗡𝗢𝗨𝗡𝗖𝗘𝗠𝗘𝗡𝗧 – Transitional Restrictions for a Further 6 Days, Perth and Peel Regions

The Perth and Peel Regions will continue with transitional restrictions for the next six days (12.01am Tuesday 6 July until 12.01am Monday 12 July) following the Government’s announcement today.

From midnight tonight, this will mean Indoor and Outdoor community sports can resume. Spectators will be permitted in line with the 150 person limit and two square metre rule.

This will mean we can proceed with NBL1 West Indigenous Round 13 games and any WABL games scheduled can resume for this weekend.

These guidelines are developed with the primary intention of ensuring good hygiene and restricting the number of people within stadiums at any one time to reduce the chances of person-to-person transmission of COVID-19. The following conditions will also apply:

  • Masks remain mandatory indoors, and outdoors when it is not possible to physically distance.
  • Masks will no longer be required in outdoor public spaces where physical distancing is possible or when undertaking vigorous exercise indoors or outdoors. People should use common sense and take a mask with them whenever they leave home.
  • Two square metre capacity rule and 150 patron limit applies for most venues.
  • Indoor and outdoor fitness classes permitted, masks mandatory except when doing vigorous exercise. Two square metre capacity rule and 150 patron limit apply.
  • Venues will continue to be required to maintain a contact register for patrons. This will now be a shared responsibility between venues and patrons, and penalties may apply for failing to comply.
  • Please also see the link to view the cleaning protocols.

Please make sure you stay connected to your local club and associations for up to date information regarding spectator limits, fixtures and mask requirements.

Following this period of transitional restrictions, it is expected that Perth and Peel will return to pre-lockdown conditions from 12:01am on Monday 12 July.

As we move towards that point, it’s important that we remain vigilant. There is still a small chance that there could be COVID-19 cases out there – so we need to keep doing the right thing.

Our community’s safety and health is a priority, so we will continue to follow the latest guidelines and requirements.

Please ensure you follow the guidelines on the WA Health website.
