Western Australia’s 10-month coronavirus-free streak has ended, with a hotel quarantine security guard in Perth testing positive to COVID-19, sending much of the state into a five-day lockdown.
The snap lockdown begins early this evening.
“Beginning at 6:00pm tonight the whole Perth metropolitan area, the Peel region and the South West region will be going into full lockdown,” WA Premier Mark McGowan said.
“This lockdown will last until 6:00pm on Friday.”
Pubs, clubs, playgrounds, and gyms will close. Restaurants will be takeaway only, and there will be no visitors allowed to care homes or hospitals.
Schools, which were due to be re-opened tomorrow, will remain closed for another
