Summary:

28th April 2022

Below is a summary of Restrictions as they stand on the 28th of April 2022. Additional and the most up to date information can be found at https://www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au/

Density

The maximum density limit aims to prevent the crowding of people in a space.

A premises must not have a density of more than 1 person per 2 square metres of floor space. This means an operator must not allow people to enter or stay on the premises (indoor or outdoor) if the size of the premises is insufficient to allow for 2 square metres of space for each person.

Sport and recreation

This information is for community sporting events and does not cover the requirements for events at large outdoor stadiums and outdoor arenas.

If the sporting facilities have seating provided, the total capacity will be equal to the number of seats provided.

If the sporting facilities do not have seating provided, gathering limits will be the lesser of:

  • 1 person per 2 square metres, or
  • 250 people for an undivided space indoors, or
  • 1,000 people in an undivided space outdoors.

Maximum numbers include all people present, including staff, volunteers, event spectators, athletes, coaches, children and babies.

Where practicable, operators, staff, volunteers and attendees should maintain 1.5 metres distancing from other people, and maintain physical distancing when exiting, entering, or in the lobby or foyer of a building.

For sporting and recreation facilities with multiple indoor spaces, the gathering cap applies separately to each single undivided indoor space. For example, a multi-purpose sporting venue with multiple, separate, undivided indoor spaces, could have up to 250 people in each of these spaces (and the density limit applies). However, the maximum of 1,000 people outdoors at a premises at one time applies regardless of whether there are multiple outdoor areas.

Sporting activities are permitted based on Level C of the AIS Framework for Rebooting Sport, which means that the following are permitted:

  • full contact training
  • full competition sport (contact and non-contact)
  • sharing of equipment where necessary
  • use of change rooms and other shared facilities.

Larger teams should consider maintaining small group separation at training, and non-essential social gatherings should be limited.

Gathering limits and the requirement to maintain physical distancing where practical applies to all sports, exercise and recreation.

Read more about Sport and recreation and the Framework for COVID-19 Safe Events and Activities on the Business Tasmania website.

Restrictions easing:

Please Click Here to access the latest announcement from the Victorian Government related to covid restrictions easing across Victoria from 23 April 2022.

As per the announcement, see below the key changes which will likely impact Tenpin Bowling venues:

  • Patrons won’t be required to have two doses or show their vaccination status before entering any venue.
  • The requirement for staff and patrons of venues to check-in using the Service Victoria app will end, with operators not required to keep any attendance records or maintain a check-in marshal.
  • Close contacts will no longer have to quarantine – provided they wear a mask indoors and avoid sensitive settings. They will also need to undertake at least five negative rapid tests over the seven days that would previously have been the self-quarantine period.
  • People are exempt from testing or quarantine for 12 weeks if they’ve had COVID-19 – up from 8 weeks.
  • Individuals will be required to notify their workplace contacts, in addition to informing their social contacts. Workplaces won’t have to individually identify and notify each potentially exposed worker.
  • A number of critical and common-sense settings will be retained, including the essential requirement to isolate for seven days following a COVID-19 diagnosis and existing two-dose and three-dose vaccination mandates for workers.

Summary:

28th April 2022

Below is a summary of Restrictions as they stand on the 28th of April 2022. Additional and the most up to date information can be found at https://www.wa.gov.au/government/covid-19-coronavirus

Based on the latest health advice, effective 12:01am Friday 29 April, WA will be easing our public health measures again – back to what we are calling our baseline settings.

Indoor mask mandate lifted.

No more masks required at venues, the office, or at indoor gatherings. Those aged 8-11 will no longer have to wear masks.

Going forward, masks will only be required for those aged 12 and over in:

– hospitals, aged care and disability care facilities,

– prisons and correctional facilities,

– airports and public transport,

– taxis and rideshare.

However, while they are no longer mandatory, masks are encouraged where physical distancing isn’t possible.

All capacity and gathering limits will be lifted.

No two square metre rule, no caps on visitors to the home, weddings or funerals. No limits in stadiums or major events.

WA will join other states in removing quarantine requirements for asymptomatic close contacts, provided they adhere to strict requirements.

These include wearing a mask, avoiding high risk and large gatherings, daily RAT testing, and working from home where possible.

Proof of vaccination requirement removed for entry to all venues except for hospitals and residential aged care facilities.

The reason we are taking this step is that WA’s vaccination levels are incredibly high. Based on the data we have, there may be only tiny fraction of the community over the age of twelve who have not received at least one dose.

Vaccination requirements for employment will remain.

G2G pass requirement to enter WA will end, as will the three dose vaccination requirement for domestic arrivals.

International vaccination requirements will still be determined by Commonwealth settings, so the double dose requirement for international arrivals will continue.

WA’s requirement for unvaccinated Australian international arrivals to undertake seven days of isolation will also continue, but it will be reviewed in four weeks.

Schools will also revert to baseline settings.

This means assemblies, camps, balls and off-site events can resume.

To help identify cases within schools and childcare, the State Government will provide 12 million free RATs to distribute across all schools and childcare facilities.

Parents and students will be encouraged to collect tests to ensure they are ready to test their children or students develop symptoms.

These will be the baseline public health settings WA will have for the foreseeable future.

Please keep updated with all the latest at https://www.wa.gov.au/government/covid-19-coronavirus
