Phase 5 of COVID-19 easing of restrictions will have to wait a few more weeks.

In the latest Perth COVID-19 update, WA Premier Mark McGowan announced today that based on health advice, phase 5 of WA’s COVID-19 recovery road map is to be pushed back to at least Saturday, August 1.

Phase five had been due to begin next week on July 18.

This phase would have seen the removal of 2sqm rule across the state and all other gathering restrictions and the 50% capacity rule for major venues and all kinds of major events would have been able to take place in WA.

This would have meant that the scheduled Western Dery on the 19th of July would have been played in front of a packed house at Optus Stadium.

The game will now be allowed to be played in front of a 50% capacity rule.

Mr McGowan wanted to clarify with the public “This is all about managing the risk and avoiding the need to reintroduce harsh restrictions.”

The decision on if August 1st will be the date Phase 5 commences will be determined within 2 weeks.
