Coronavirus (COVID-19) update - status of City facilities and services

As of Saturday 6 June, the City has an expanded range of programs, services and re-opened facilities in line with the State Government Phase 3 COVID-19 restrictions.

To ensure the health and welfare of the community and City staff, limits on the number of people who can attend each facility or participate in programs at any time remain in place.

Registrations are still required for attendance at some programs and facilities.

The revised opening times and pre-bookings ensure our staff can clean the facilities and minimise the potential spread of infection within our community. We ask everyone to continue to follow the 1.5m physical distancing requirements and practise good hygiene.

As required by the State Government, the City has prepared a COVID Safety Plan for each of our facilities and programs.

Key changes include the lifting of gatherings to up to 100 people allowing for 2sqm per person, the reopening of playgrounds, skate parks, outdoor gym equipment and the resumption of the Leisure World gym and fitness classes. Sports clubs and community groups within the City are also able to resume full contact sport and access clubrooms, change rooms and kitchen areas.

For the latest health-related information and advice, please visit the WA Department of Health website, which is updated daily, or call the Coronavirus information helpline on 13 268 43.

For updates on the City's ongoing response to COVID-19, please check this website regularly and follow our corporate Facebook page. Important updates will also be provided via our eNewsletter database.
