What Phase are we in? 

Western Australia is currently in Phase 4 of the COVID-19 WA Roadmap. This includes: 

  • all existing gathering limits and the 100/300 rule removed
  • gathering limits now only determined by WA’s reduced 2sqm rule
  • the 2sqm rule will only include staff at venues that hold more than 500 patrons
  • removal of seated service requirements at food businesses and licensed premises
  • alcohol can be served as part of unseated service arrangements
  • major events permitted, subject to having an approved COVID Event Plan
  • unseated performances permitted at venues such as concert halls, live music venues, bars, pubs and nightclubs
  • gyms operating unstaffed, but regular cleaning must be maintained
  • the casino floor reopening under agreed temporary restrictions.

Everyone is encouraged to continue to practice physical distancing and good personal hygiene.

What Phase are we moving into? 

Based on the latest health advice, Phase 4 of the COVID-19 WA Roadmap has been modified and extended. Exemptions to the 2 square metre rule will be permitted at selected venues to continue WA’s economic recovery. From Saturday 24 October, selected venues will be exempt from the 2 square metre rule for seated performances, allowing them to operate at up to 60% capacity.

Selected venues may include:

  • Theatres
  • Concert halls
  • Amphitheatres
  • Auditoriums
  • Performing arts centres
  • Comedy lounges
  • Cinemas

These venues are deemed ‘low risk’ as they are seated and ticketed. This change will allow these venues the opportunity to operate at higher capacity in a COVID-safe way, ensuring more Western Australians can enjoy live performances and support local venues.
