Today the State Government announced the removal of several COVID-19 restrictions which will come into effect this FRIDAY, April 29, 2022 at 12.01am.The list of measures involved can be seen HEREOf most significance to our industry is the removal of MASKS.From this Friday, mask wearing indoors will no longer be mandatory for staff and customers, however the option remains for all people to continue wearing them if they wish to do so.Going forward, masks will only be required for those aged 12 and over in:– hospitals, aged care and disability care facilities,– prisons and correctional facilities,– airports and public transport,– taxis and rideshare.🟠 All capacity and gathering limits will be lifted.No two square metre rule, no caps on visitors to the home, weddings or funerals.No limits in stadiums or major events.🟠 WA will join other states in removing quarantine requirements for asymptomatic close contacts, provided they adhere to strict requirements.These include wearing a mask, avoiding high risk and large gatherings, daily RAT testing, and working from home where possible.🟠 Proof of vaccination requirement removed for entry to all venues except for hospitals and residential aged care facilities.Vaccination requirements for employment will remain.🟠 G2G pass requirement to enter WA will end, as will the three dose vaccination requirement for domestic arrivals.International vaccination requirements will still be determined by Commonwealth settings, so the double dose requirement for international arrivals will continue.WA’s requirement for unvaccinated Australian international arrivals to undertake seven days of isolation will also continue, but it will be reviewed in four weeks.While proof of vaccination for liquor stores was removed in February we applaud the State Government on today’s continued removal of COVID-19 restrictions.
