The state of Western Australia will begin relaxing some lockdown measures Monday, Premier Mark McGowan said on Twitter.
“Our State has seen remarkable results in the fight against COVID-19 – and while that fight will continue for some time yet, those results mean we can now cautiously adjust some of the most extreme of those restrictions,” he said on the platform.
“As of tomorrow, 27 April, based on expert health advice, the two person limit on non-work indoor and outdoor gatherings will be adjusted, with the limit rising to 10 people,” he added.
The list of “acceptable activities” to leave home for has also been extended. It now includes shopping, medical needs, exercise, studying where remote learning is unavailable, childcare or school, work, “non-contract recreational activities” such as picnics, and some gatherings of less than 10 people.
“All other restrictions will remain in place for now, and all public playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor gym equipment to remain closed,” McGowan said.
