EXPLAINED: The easing of WA’s COVID-19 social distancing measures
Premier Mark McGowan and Health Minister Roger Cook’s full press conference regarding the easing of social distancing restrictions and latest Covid-19 case statistics.
The eased restrictions are effective from tomorrow, Monday, April 27 and mean:
- Indoor and outdoor gatherings for up to 10 people will be allowed including weddings, outdoor personal training, and open house or display village inspections
The advice now means everyone should continue to practise appropriate social distancing and stay home except for:
- shopping for what you need, such as food or other necessary supplies;
- medical or health care needs, including compassionate requirements;
- exercise, including outdoor personal training without shared equipment;
- training or university study, where remote learning is unavailable;
- childcare or school;
- non-contact recreational activities such as private picnics in the park, fishing, boating, hiking and camping – all in compliance with travel restrictions and the 10-person rule;
- home opens and display village openings, with appropriate record keeping and hygiene practices in place, and in compliance with the 10-person rule.
