When the state reaches the 90 per cent milestone, a number of changes will be made to the state’s COVID-19 response.
These include the wearing of facemasks in public areas, which will then only be required at “high-risk” indoor settings such as on public transport, in hospitals and aged care facilities.
Proof of vaccination will be required to attend nightclubs, casinos, and large events with crowds of more than 1000 people.
Contact registers and use of Safe WA will still be required at all public venues, as will revised COVID-19 event and safety plans.
Entry will be restricted to remote Aboriginal communities, where necessary.
“These safeguards will complement our vaccination rollout,” Mr McGowan said.
“They will be interim. They won’t last forever.
“But they will put us in the best position in case of an outbreak.”
