Welcome to Business Armadale
Chamber of Commerce

The State Government  has made the following changes to the COVID_19 restrictions with the introduction of Phase 4 and is valid from Saturday the 27th of June 2020

  • Gathering limits now based only on 2sqm rule – all other limits removed
  • 2sqm rule only applies to staff for venues of more than 500 patrons
  • Removal of seated service requirements at food businesses and licensed premises;
  • No requirement to maintain patron register at food businesses and licensed premises;
  • Alcohol can be served as part of unseated service arrangements;
  • All events permitted except for large scale, multi-stage music festivals;
  • Unseated performances permitted at venues such as concert halls, live music venues, bars, pubs and nightclubs;
  • Gyms operating unstaffed, but regular cleaning must be maintained; and
  • The casino gaming floor reopening under agreed temporary restrictions.

For WA’s major sport and entertainment venues, a 50 per cent capacity rule will apply. Therefore, under Phase 4 the temporary capacity of Optus Stadium will be 30,633 for sport events (35,000 for concerts), HBF Park can hold 10,150 (16,500 for concerts), RAC Arena can hold 7150 (8250 for concerts).

We must continue to keep up physical distancing where possible and maintain good personal hygiene to better protect ourselves and the general health of our community.

Businesses will be expected to ensure their COVID Safety Plans are updated and continue to be implemented.

Depending on infection rates locally, Phase 5 is planned to be introduced on Saturday, 18 July (effective from 11.59pm Friday, 17 July) and will result in the removal of the 2sqm rule.

It is also expected to see the removal of all gathering restrictions, other COVID-19 related rules introduced by the WA Government, and the 50 per cent capacity limit for major venues.

Phase 6 is likely to be the removal of WA’s hard state border, however the date this occurs will be dependent on when the spread of infection is controlled in the eastern states.
