Restrictions Introduced for Perth and Peel From 6pm tonight
Public health and social measures will come into effect for the Perth and Peel region at 6pm tonight (Thursday, 23 December 2021) until 6am Tuesday, 28 December 2021.
This is as a result of Western Australia having recorded one new case of COVID-19 in the community overnight, who is a traveller from Queensland.

These public health and social measures include:
  • Mandatory mask wearing for all public indoor settings and on public transport;
  • Certain high-risk large-scale events, such as music festivals, will be cancelled and nightclubs will be closed; and dancing is banned except for weddings; and
  • Anyone who has been in Perth and Peel since December 16 and enters another regional area is required to wear a mask as per requirements in Perth-Peel. Travel to remote Aboriginal communities remain restricted.
All these measures will be reviewed regularly and the Chief Health Officer will continue to monitor the serious situation and provide more ongoing advice.

The Department of Health is working through the case and is in the process of identifying close and casual contacts, and locations visited.

People are asked to check the exposure sites list regularly, monitor their health and get tested immediately and self-quarantine, if they develop symptoms.

Individuals that have visited an exposure site are required to follow the corresponding health advice issued for that location.
