Of course if you are returning to your home in the Peel or South West you will be subject to the same rules as everyone else which include the following:
- People in lockdown areas must stay home — unless shopping for essentials such as groceries, medicine and necessary supplies; or attending to medical or healthcare needs
- Only go to work if you are essential to your business.
- People can only cross state regions if you are returning to your residence.
- Masks must be worn outside, inside at work, and on public transport.
- Exercise permitted within your neighbourhood —- but only with one other person and only for one hour per day
- Schools will not open on Monday – meaning the new school year pushed back by a week
- Premier Mark McGowan has urged a stop to any interstate travel into Western Australia as an extra precautionary measure.
A decision on future weeks of the Championships will be made in the next 24 hours and all Country Associations will be notified. As always we will follow government advice.
