WA edges closer to absolute 0 with no new cases and 1 recovery overnight.

Premier Mark McGowan again reported the good news that Western Australia has recorded 0 new cases of COVID-19 overnight and 1 further recovery in his latest Perth coronavirus update.

“That means we have now had 538 people recover from COVID-19, and as a result, we now have only 6 active cases in Western Australia and all are West Australia’s.” Mr McGowan states.

There is now only 1 confirmed COVID-19 patient in hospital, and that person is in ICU.

This is further welcomed news as the state heads towards Phase 2 of the Western Australia Roadmap and as our community begins to open back and settle into the new normal.

Rottnest Island will also remain earmarked in its current status as a quarantine zone in preparation for any future potential COVID-19 outbreak.

Perth Schools Attendance Up

As of yesterday, an average of 84.5% school attendance was recorded across public schools in Western Australia, which is the highest attendance now for many weeks.

“So, 84.5% attendance of public schools is a great result in these circumstances.

These results continue to be encouraging and they’ll form part of our assessment of the school policy which will be outlined tomorrow to provide guidance on how the rest of term 2 will look as of the commencement of next week.” Mr McGowan.
