WA’s Premier Mark McGowan has announced the next phase of easing restrictions in Western Australia, which has taken effect on Monday 18 May 2020.
During the current pandemic, Western Australians have done an incredible job in stopping the spread of the virus.
Thanks to that hard work, and the measures that had been put in place, we are now ready to take the next step.
The Western Australian State Government has now released Phase 2 Regional Travel Restriction Update.
From Friday 29 May 2020 regional travel restrictions will be lifted, excluding travel to biosecurity zones within the Kimberley region, parts of Shire of East Pilbara and the Shire of Ngaanyatjarraku and remote Aboriginal communities.
He also released our roadmap for the easing of restrictions in Western Australia over the coming weeks and months.

SOCIAL DISTANCING AND HYGIENE
This is a friendly reminder to all shack owners/uses and visitors to the area. Please remember to follow good social-distancing protocols at all times.
Every Western Australian needs to play their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. This means following good hygiene habits and social distancing.
- Stay home if you’re sick. Do not go to work or school.
- Keep 1.5 metres away from others.
- Don’t make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
- Use tap and pay instead of cash.
- Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitiser.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.

WA remains in a State of Emergency, and various restrictions are enforceable by fines of up to $50,000 for individuals and $250,000 for businesses. Police officers also have the power to issue $1000 on-the-spot fines.
