What’s Happening in WA?
Firstly, can anyone believe its August already??? To be honest so much has been happening this year its hard to keep track of it all! So we have compiled a quick guide to get you up to date with all the important bits and pieces that are happening in WA at the moment
1. WA’s ROADMAP
In stark contrast to the rest of the country we are so lucky that WA’s COVID-19 restrictions have been relaxed even further, as WA’s roadmap is updated to complete the removal of all restrictions.
The WA COVID-19 roadmap, was due to be implemented on Saturday, 15 August, has been delayed and the new tentative date for Phase 5 will now be Saturday, 29 August. A final decision on whether Phase 5 can proceed on this date will be decided in about 2 weeks’ time.
Phase 5 would see remaining restrictions removed, except WA’s hard border and access to remote Aboriginal communities. It would also see the removal of WA’s 2 square metre rule and the 50 per cent capacity for our major venues.
So along with the rest of WA, we are looking forward to the prospect of this happening later this month!

5. WE WANT THE AFL GRAND FINAL!
Even if you’re not an AFL footy fan, im sure you have heard all the ruckus surrounding the Grand Final……. its no lie, we all want it here, and it would be an amazing boost to the WA economy, but also would it impact the State Government to lift the boarder bans earlier than anticipated?
What we do know is that The AFL in the coming weeks will decide to move the Grand Final away from Victoria and while it’s no surprise due to the current state of disaster, it doesn’t make the call any less momentous.
AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan has remained steadfast that the MCG is the host until it isn’t but once the official call is made at some point in August. Some say that Queensland deserves to host multiple finals as a reward for effectively saving footy’s 2020 season but Optus Stadium and its 60,000 capacity, is a venue befitting of the biggest game of the year!
