Gatherings and work - Western Australia

Current as of 27 June 2020, at 11:40 AEST

Western Australia has replaced the 4-square-metre rule with the 2-square-metre rule. This means the total number of people at a gathering can't exceed more than 1 person per 2 square metres. For example, a venue can only hold a maximum of 100 people if it spans 200 square metres.

It’s important that at all gatherings you remain at least 1.5 metres from people who are not from your household. Practise good hygiene.
