Further restrictions announced on travel within the State to assist in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
The Premier has today announced that the State Government will introduce further restrictions on travel within the State from midnight Tuesday (31 March 2020), to assist in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Restrictions will be placed on travel within the entire State of Western Australia and Western Australians will not be permitted to leave their regional boundary.
Exemptions will apply in circumstances including employment purposes; medical or veterinary reasons; delivery of essential services including health or emergency services; people living across regional boundaries, who may not have access to groceries or supplies immediately within their region; transport of goods; compassionate grounds; a family member has primary care responsibilities; for school, TAFE or tertiary study reasons; to escape domestic violence or due to an emergency.
The regional boundaries mirror those of the regional development commissions. Due to their close proximity, the Perth and Peel regions will combine into one region.
