COVID-19: What it means for the outdoor and tourism industries


Western Australia’s COVID-19 restrictions have been relaxed to Stage 4 as of 27 June.

Restrictions on business operations are now reduced to:

  • all existing gathering limits and the 100/300 rule removed
  • gathering limits only determined by WA’s reduced 2 square metre rule
  • the 2 square metre rule will only include staff at venues that hold more than 500 patrons
  • removal of seated service requirements at food businesses and licensed premises
  • no requirement to maintain patron register at food businesses and licensed premises
  • alcohol can be served as part of unseated service arrangements
  • all events permitted except for large scale, multi-stage music festivals
  • unseated performances permitted at venues such as live music venues, bars, pubs and nightclubs
  • gyms operating unstaffed, but regular cleaning must be maintained

It’s important to remember that not all parts of our country are COVID19-free, so it is important to maintain physical distancing and hand hygiene.
