Premier Mark McGowan in the latest Perth COVID-19 update has confirmed masks are gone.

Western Australia has recorded no new local cases of Coronavirus for 12 days straight with no local cases or international cases recorded overnight.

There have now been over 95,000 test conducted across Western Australia since the start of the Perth lockdown.

Based on the latest health advice we will revert back to where we were on the 30th of January – meaning masks are no longer mandatory as of Sunday morning at 12:01am.

Perth COVID-19 Update: Perth Restrictions Lifted As Masks Are Gone

This means that officially Perth and Peel restrictions will end as planned at 12.01am, Sunday, February 14.

“As a result of Western Australia’s swift response, from Sunday we can now go back to where we were before the snap five-day lockdown.” said Mr McGowan.

Only a few restrictions will apply, like the standard capacity rules, restrictions on remote Aboriginal communities, mandatory contact registration and of course, our Controlled Interstate Border.

The wearing of masks will no longer be compulsory as of Sunday.

Mr McGowan did preference “while we’re winding back these restrictions, we need everyone keep up the COVID safe practices – washing your hands, keeping a distance where possible, get tested when unwell and using SafeWA.”


“When you go out, you need to sign in. It’s simple, but as we’ve seen this week, it can make a huge difference,” said Mr McGowan.
