The situation regarding COVID-19 is evolving rapidly and the Shire will do our best to keep the community informed.

Based on the latest health advice, Phase 4 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap has been extended until Friday, 23 October.
A final decision on whether Phase 5 can proceed on this date, or if it can be brought forward, will be decided in October.
Phase 5 would see remaining restrictions removed, except WA’s hard border and access to remote Aboriginal communities.
It would also see the removal of WA’s 2 square metre rule and the 50 per cent capacity for our major venues.
Western Australia is working closely with the Commonwealth and state and territory jurisdictional governments to respond appropriately to the coronavirus pandemic.
Western Australia’s COVID-19 restrictions will be relaxed even further, as WA’s roadmap is updated to complete the removal of all restrictions.
Due to the world-leading response to COVID in WA, Phase 4 will start on Saturday, June 27 (11.59pm Friday, June 26)

The COVIDSafe app is a key part of the Australian Government’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. Having the confidence to find and contain outbreaks quickly will mean governments can ease restrictions while still keeping Australians safe. Click HERE for further information.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected members of our community in different ways and we all have our own ways of coping with the changes that are impacting our lives. There are people who would like to offer a helping hand, and those who could do with a little help.
To make it easier for people to connect, the Shire of Lake Grace and local community groups are working together on the Helping Hands project.
Together, we would like to empower and support our local community during the COVID–19 pandemic.
Some ideas include:
Contact the Shire of Lake Grace on 9890 2500 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a hand or can lend a hand, or would like more information. All contact will remain confidential and we will not provide you contact details to anyone without your knowledge and permission
