International arrivals capped for a month
Mr McGowan’s request to have international arrivals in Perth capped has been approved by the Commonwealth.
“I asked the Commonwealth to halve our international arrivals for at least a month. This request has been accepted. However, the reduction in our weekly cap will only begin from Thursday morning.
“The reduced cap of 512 per week will stay in place until May 30.
“However if the Commonwealth is unable to assist with proper quarantine facilities, I am reluctant to return to the full 1,025 per week cap.”
Currently, Perth hotels are hosting 2,156 returned overseas travellers with a further four international flights set to arrive in Perth today.
Western Australia’s COVID-19 current cases
WA has now recorded a total of 986 confirmed cases.
