CAPACITY LIMIT INCREASES FOR SEATED VENUES
From Monday, 15 March 2021, capacity limits for some venues will increase to 75 per cent.
Venues wishing to take advantage of this new capacity increase may do so if they have enough available space to provide adequate additional seating. Seating can be in the form of table chairs, lounges or couches, ensuring that patrons are seated.
Areas where patrons are standing or areas where there is a mixture of seated and standing remain limited to the existing one in two square metre provisions.
Increased capacity of up to 75 per cent will be allowed at seated outdoor and indoor venues including:

Under WA’s Phase 4 restrictions:
Masks are no longer be mandatory.
There will be no travel restrictions within WA, except for remote Aboriginal communities.
As was the case before the lockdown, public or private events involving more than 500 patrons that require local government authority approval will need an approved COVID Event Plan as part of that process.
Everyone should continue to practise physical distancing where possible, maintain good personal hygiene at all times and get tested when unwell.
The WA Government has developed a free app, SafeWA, which assists businesses to keep their contact register system in an easy and convenient manner.
Businesses that use the SafeWA app must also have an alternative and manual method of registering patron details, such as a paper-based register. This is important in the event that an individual does not have access or chooses not to use the SafeWA app.
A comprehensive toolkit for business including SafeWA guides, Contact Register Infosheets, social media graphics, contact register templates and more can be found here. - Click on links or images below to access PDFs:
