Capacity limits
There are no longer any capacity restrictions for venues and events. This means private gatherings, concerts, sporting games, and weddings can go ahead at full capacity.

Measures remain in place to keep these events safe:

SafeWA and contact registers
You can help keep WA safe by checking in at businesses and venues using SafeWA, or by leaving your details on a contact register. Most businesses and venues are required to maintain a contact register. The WA Government’s SafeWA app is an easy way for people to check-in at businesses. A manual contact register must also be available.
Contact registers are essential in assisting contact tracers to identify people who may have been exposed to a positive case. More info on the SafeWA app: https://www.wa.gov.au/organisation/covid-communications/covid-19-coronavirus-safewa-guide-businesses
