Perth and Peel in Lockdown -  Schools Remain Open


Premier, Mark McGowan, and Minister for Health, Roger Cook say people in the Perth metropolitan area and Peel region will enter a minimum four-day lockdown from 12.01 am Tuesday, June 29 to limit any potential spread of COVID-19.

 "The immediate circuit breaker lockdown has been introduced on the best of public health advice due to a fast-evolving situation in Western Australia following a third COVID-19 positive case. The first positive case 1022, already announced, is now confirmed to have the highly infectious Delta strain through genome sequencing linked directly to the Sydney outbreak. The second case 1023, linked to case 1022, has already been reported and announced today. The third case 1024, linked to case 1022, has been confirmed positive tonight."


Schools, boarding schools and childcare centres in the Perth and Peel regions will remain open except for the three schools that have been directly impacted as they are a listed exposure site. Mask wearing rules apply.
