Phase 4 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap extended

Based on the latest health advice, Phase 4 of the WA COVID-19 roadmap has been extended until Friday, 23 October.

The new tentative start date for Phase 5 will now be Saturday, 24 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.

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. 

 How can we help?

Some ideas include:

  • weekly check In        
  • a friendly phone call     
  • help to get groceries and medicines
  • practical help around the house

 How can you lend a hand?

  • delivering supplies
  • providing essential transport (e.g. doctor's appointments)
  • urgent household maintenance
  • phoning those living on their own  
  • by suggesting other ways you could help

Contact the Shire of Lake Grace on 9890 2500 or  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
