WA Premier Mark McGowan has indicated phase 3 of the four-phase plan for lifting the current COVID-19 restrictions may be brought forward by a week. The Phase 3 lifting originally planned for June 15th has now been pencilled in for June 8th and will see more relaxation for borders and more businesses opening their doors.
“In the next round, we are looking at things like borders, beauty and barbells. The dropping of some of the State borders, particularly towards the north. And the further expansion of the number of people who can go to restaurants and cafes and pubs. So as soon as I can do it within health advice, we will do it and it will help us get our economy up as quickly as possible and create jobs and get people back to normality.” said Mr McGowan.
