Premier Mark McGowan unveiled Western Australia’s roadmap for living with COVID.

The state will open its international and state borders once 90 per cent of Western Australians over the age of 12 are double vaccinated.

Premier expects this will be by late January or early February.

An official date won’t be announced until the 80 per cent double dose vaccination target is reached.

Once the state reopens some restrictions would also be introduced such as the wearing of masks in high risk areas such as public transport, hospitals and aged-care facilities.

Vaccination proof will also be needed for nightclubs, casinos and large events with crowds of more than 1,000 people.

There will be a COVID-19 revised event and safety plan to adhere to.

And the contact registers and the SafeWA app will still be in place at all public venues.

The Premier described the roadmap as a “safe transition” plan.
