We are still able to go ahead with the Mighty Jarrah Trail Run!
Our COVID Safe plan was designed under the Phase 4 restrictions and that is how it will stay.
Keep training and stay safe - we'll see you in a month!
Since we entered Phase 4 of the roadmap, most Western Australians have been enjoying a way of life that is mostly back to normal.
While we enjoy a COVID-safe life, I do have an update regarding the next phase of eased restrictions, as well as the Perth Royal Show.
Unfortunately, based on the latest health advice, we’ve had to make the decision to extend Phase 4 for a further two months.
And in line with that decision, we’ve had to cancel this year’s Perth Royal Show – as we cannot be certain that it can be staged without risk.
Throughout this crisis, I am so proud of the way our State has responded.
Obviously the situation in Victoria is one we watch very closely and it is pleasing to see a recent improvement in their daily new case numbers.
We also are closely monitoring cases in other States as well – so we can better prepare ourselves for when we do have an outbreak here.
While we have had no community transmission in Western Australia for 129 days now, we simply can’t afford to get complacent, because the virus could sneak back into WA and spread like wildfire.
The updated roadmap for WA, announced in June, included details about Phase 5 and Phase 6.
Back then, we announced a tentative date for Phase 5 though we were clear that it would only be introduced pending the latest health advice from our Chief Health Officer.
Phase 5 will result in the removal of the 2 square metre rule and the removal of the 50 per cent capacity limit for major venues, like Optus Stadium.
Since the initial announcement of those phases, we’ve delayed Phase 5 by two weeks on three separate occasions. I understand that these short extensions have created uncertainty.
It’s difficult for many people across our community and across a wide section of industries to properly plan.
Today, our Chief Health Officer has recommended a further extension of Phase 4 by two months.
He has advised that it could take two months or longer for the outbreaks in Victoria to be fully under control.
On his advice, the new tentative start date of Phase 5 will now be Saturday, October 24.
We will likely provide clarity in October about whether or not we can proceed with this timeline, or if the date could be brought forward.
I know this will cause frustration and challenges for some sections of the community.
I know many people were hoping and planning for Phase 5 to be introduced sooner - and this decision will throw those plans out.
But proceeding to Phase 5 too soon is just not appropriate right now.
By remaining in Phase 4 for longer, it assists us in reducing the numbers of people who could be potentially exposed and requiring health responses, should an outbreak occur in our State.
Western Australia is leading the nation when it comes to COVID-19. We can’t afford to take any unnecessary risks now.
In that respect, I also have some news regarding the Perth Royal Show.
In July, we announced that the Perth Royal Show would go ahead, and we provided funding to support that event.
At the time, that announcement was based on the anticipated move to Phase 5 being on July 18.
Yesterday, the Chief Health Officer provided updated advice to the State Government about the Show.
From a public health perspective, the Royal Show provides a number of significant challenges during this pandemic.
Not only does the large number of visitors and indoor venues at the show present challenges, but the show has a number of high frequency contact surfaces that would pose too big a risk.
Holding the Royal Show is just not possible this year.
If, somehow COVID-19 was present at the Show, it would lead to a significant outbreak.
It would result in the spread of COVID-19 in our community, like we have never seen before in WA.
Put simply, this is a serious risk, and it’s one that I think Western Australia cannot afford to take.
Obviously this news will be disappointing for many families, for many businesses and of course our regional farming communities.
I wish the Show could go ahead, but we have to listen to the health advice – after all it’s worked well for us throughout the pandemic so far.
As Premier, I have to put the health and safety of the whole community first.
We will work closely with the Royal Agricultural Society to make sure they can deliver a vibrant Perth Royal Show in future years.
The Show will be back.
If we all keep doing the right thing, and our hard border remains in place – we give ourselves the best chance at avoiding this virus from causing havoc through our community.
It’s the hard work of all Western Australians and our hard border policy that has allowed us to open up our economy more than any other State.
We’re in the best possible position right now. Let’s try to keep it that way.
For those pups training for the 6km Doggy Dash, share this with your owner...!!

Here's something that might appeal to some....!
Looking for something a little bit beyond the normal?
Thinking about doing the 60km and 21km? Or 35km and 12km? It's possible!!

A little COVID update from the organiser. We are doing our best, and we know you are too!
As a final note, please rest assured that all entry fees are being held in trust by our online registration platform until we are able to deliver the event. Should government restrictions be re-imposed and the event need to be cancelled due to COVID-19 your entry fees will be reimbursed minus a small admin fee. We’ve also introduced our ‘change of heart’ registration option this year, whereby for a small fee, you can cancel your registration for any reason up to one hour prior to start time and we’ll give you back 100% of your entry fee. We hope these small steps will give you confidence to register for our events early, so that we can provide you with the best experience possible. We can’t wait to see you in September!!
Just think, not long ago you weren't allowed outside....!!
Make the most it and stretch those legs.
