Roadmap out of lockdown: McGowan announces Phase 3

Roadmap out of lockdown: McGowan announces Phase 3

The next phase of Western Australia's COVID-19 road map has been outlined with a number of restrictions to be eased on Saturday, June 6.

The limit on non-work gatherings is set to be raised to 100 people as part of Phase Three.

This is the biggest step back to normality yet with a number of activities able to reopen.

This includes all fitness classes, outdoor playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor gym equipment, as well as full-contact sport and training.

Many Western Australians will be excited as restaurants, pubs, cafes and bars will be able to serve alcohol without a meal.

Beauty therapy and personal care services are also able to reopen in Phase Three.

Premier Mark McGowan said Phase Three is a big step forward for WA.

"I know how frustrating the restrictions can be. I wish we could remove them all at once, but we need to be responsible and follow the health advice - it's worked so far," he said.

"Phase Three is a big step forward for our State. It allows more people to get out and enjoy a meal or a drink with friends and family, supporting local businesses."

As part of Phase Three, WA will also be the first state in the nation to implement a two square metre per person capacity rule for venues, replacing the previous four square metre rule.

Travel will also now be permitted throughout WA, including into the Kimberley region. Access into remote Aboriginal communities will remain prohibited.

Phase Four will be finalised in the coming weeks, and will take into account the impact of Phase Three in the WA community.
