WA COVID mask mandate lifts along with capacity restrictions as Omicron peak passes

Western Australia’s mask mandate will be dropped from Friday, as the state moves to new baseline public health measures.

Other changes include removing capacity limits at all venues, including the two square metre rule, and the 75 per cent limit at stadiums.

WA’s G2G pass system will be scrapped, allowing free travel into the state, and vaccination mandates for entry into venues such as pubs and nightclubs will also be abandoned.

Close contacts of positive COVID cases will no longer have to quarantine for seven days if they are symptom-free.

Masks will still be required on public transport, in rideshare services and taxis, at aged care facilities, hospitals and airports.

Most other Australian states and territories have also eased their mask mandates in the last week.

More to come.
