Premier flags end to state of emergency COVID laws

News Today || Headlines Today

Mark McGowan has signalled WA’s state of emergency declaration enforced at the height of the COVID pandemic could come to an end after almost 900 days.

The Opposition has led calls for the state of emergency to cease and for the Government to instead pass laws through Parliament to enforce the remaining COVID rules.

Other State governments, such as South Australia and Victoria, made similar changes months ago.

The Premier on Tuesday flagged WA could follow suit by passing legislation allowing authorities to police the mask mandate at hospitals, aged-care homes and on public transport.

“We’re looking at what can be done in terms of having a different regime. As soon as we can do that, we will,” Mr McGowan said.
