Update: 12:00pm AWST, Friday 5th March March 2021

Statement from West Australian Premier Mark McGowan - 

Today I can announce that the next stage of eased restrictions to deliver a boost for thousands of WA businesses.

As of Monday, March 15, in line with the latest expert health advice, many WA venues will be permitted to operate at up to 75% of normal maximum capacity.

This will mean that WA venues continue to have the lightest restrictions, and is another major step forward for our State.

Increased capacity of up to 75% will be allowed at seated outdoor and indoor venues including entertainment venues, restaurants, cafΓ©s, food courts, bars and places of worship.

This change will come into effect from 12:01am on Monday 15 March and will permit the following WA venues to operate at either 75% of maximum capacity OR the 2 square metre rule - whichever is greater:
- restaurants, cafes, food courts, and bars;
- indoor and outdoor auditoriums and amphitheatres;
- theatres;
- concert halls;
- cinemas;
- comedy lounges;
- performing arts centres;
- places of worship;
- function centres;
- community, recreation or youth centre or facilities, including community halls and sporting clubs including but not limited to: community halls, sporting clubs, Returned and Services League facilities and Police and
Community Youth Centres;
- WA’s major stadiums (Optus Stadium, HBF Park, RAC Arena, HBF Stadium - Main Arena); and,
- funeral parlours

However, the two square metre rule will continue to apply to all other unfixed seating venues and facilities including nightclubs, music events and the casino.

To clarify, for pubs and bars, which have a mix of seated and standing service are included in this new rule, and 75% refers to their total capacity, not just their seated capacity.

The Chief Health Officer will continue to review these arrangements and provide ongoing updated advice, as necessary.

I am sure the new 75% rule will be welcome news for many in our hospitality sector. We know many of our businesses have been thriving under WA’s unique approach – and we hope this change will assist them further.

This is a strong, safe step forward for the WA economy.

It means WA continues to have the lightest restrictions of all the states in place for local businesses.

It's thanks to every Western Australian that we can now make this change.

My only request is this - please keep doing the right thing - that means keeping up good habits, staying home when sick, getting tested if you have symptoms, and making sure you use the SafeWA app when you head out.

And most importantly, keep getting out there, supporting our local businesses, and keeping our State strong.

Update: 2:00pm AWST, Sunday 31st January 2021

Announcement from the WA State Government:

Beginning at 6pm tonight, the whole Perth metropolitan area, the Peel region and the South West region will be going into a full lockdown. This lockdown will run until 6pm on Friday. A five-day lockdown. It’s crucial we act quickly, to keep the community safe. We cannot forget how quickly this virus can spread, nor the devastation it can cause.

Following our discussions with the Chief Health Officer and Police Commissioner, the following measures will be put in place from 6pm for people in Perth, Peel and the South West:

People in these regions are required to stay home, except for the following four reasons:
- Shopping for essentials like groceries, medicine and necessary supplies.
- Medical or health care needs including compassionate requirements and looking after the vulnerable.
- Exercise, within their neighbourhood, but only with one other person and only for one hour per day.
- Work, where you cannot work from home or remotely.

In addition to this Stay Home rule. If you do leave home, for one of the four reasons you will be required to wear a mask at all times outside and if you need to work indoors, then wearing a mask in the workplace is also mandatory. To be clear, mask wearing on public transport is also mandatory.

People in the Perth, Peel or South West region need to stay inside their region for the next five days, unless for an essential reason. We are strongly encouraging that everyone in this area, who is from another WA region, stay here and do not travel further outside of this area until the lockdown is over. If you do need to travel outside the region you are in now, that can only occur if you need to return to your place of residence or exceptional circumstances.

The transport of essential goods into this region, is permitted, under our existing transport guidelines.
This lockdown means the following businesses, venues and locations in the relevant regions need to close for the next five days:
- Pubs, bars and clubs
- Gyms and indoor sporting venues
- Playgrounds, skate parks and outdoor recreational facilities
- Cinemas, entertainment venues, and casinos
- Large religious gatherings and places of worship
- Libraries and cultural institutions

Restaurants and cafes will close, and provide takeaway service only. 10 people can attend funerals, weddings are cancelled for the next five days.

No visitors are permitted to your home, unless caring for someone vulnerable or an emergency.
No visitors will be allowed in aged care homes, unless exceptional circumstances.
No visitors to hospitals and/or disability facilities, unless exceptional circumstances.
Elective surgery and procedures for categories 2 and 3 will be suspended from Tuesday, 2 February. Category 1 and urgent category 2 surgery will continue.

For a majority of schools in these regions, school was due to start tomorrow. That has now been put on hold and schools will be closed until next week – following the lockdown measures. It is, in effect, an extension of the school holidays.

All these measures will be reviewed regularly and the Chief Health Officer will continue to monitor the serious situation and provide more ongoing advice. This is an extremely fast-moving situation. I know for many Western Australians this is going to come as a shock. Western Australians have done so well for so long but this week it is absolutely crucial that we stay home, maintain physical distancing and personal hygiene and get tested if you have symptoms.

This is a very serious situation and each and every one of us has to do everything we personally can to help stop the spread in the community. We have acted decisively and swiftly given these circumstances. I want to thank everyone in advance for their patience.

The NBL has decided to cancel the remaining games of the Grand Final series between the Sydney Kings and Perth Wildcats.
 
Game four was scheduled to be played on Friday at RAC Arena. Sydney Kings management have indicated today that they did not wish to proceed with the remainder of the series given the global uncertainty and effects around COVID-19.
 
NBL Owner and Executive Chairman Larry Kestelman said: “We respect the decision in what are extraordinary times for everyone. We are understanding of not just the players’ health and well being but also their desire to be with their families, especially given so many of them have family overseas. 
 
“Having consulted with the Australian Basketball Players’ Association we have decided the remaining games shall not be played. With Perth leading the best of five game series 2-1, we will now consider a decision on the outcome of the championship over the next 48 hours.

“We acknowledge both teams for what has been a fantastic series and season. Sydney was the only team to have gone through an entire NBL season on top of the ladder and Perth was leading the Grand Final series.
 
“This has been an incredible season for the NBL and one of the best in our 41-year history with record attendances and world class basketball. We thank all of our teams, officials, staff, partners and fans for their outstanding support and we look forward to returning even bigger and better in 2020-21.
 
“We wish everyone around Australia and around the world all the very best and to stay safe during these challenging times.

A quick note from The Killers -

"Tickets for our late summer/fall shows will not be going on sale just yet. The news is changing every hour around Coronavirus and, ultimately, we want you, our fans, to stay focused on prevention and remaining safe and cautious right now.

In addition, once we go on sale, we will be providing a portion of our ticketing income to local organizations who help people whose service industry jobs are impacted by the Coronavirus in each of our tour cities. We are taking this personally. Both we and our families have had these jobs and our hearts go out to those affected.

If anything changes again, we'll let you know; in the meantime, we're more excited than ever to sing these new songs with you, and can't wait to see you soon. Watch this space for the updated ticket information!"

ASM Global has been closely following the federal and state governments’ management of the COVID-19 outbreak, and takes seriously our responsibility for the health and well-being of our patrons, clients and employees coming to RAC Arena.
 
Following the initial announcement by the Prime Minister on Friday afternoon, we are making contact with the promoters of concerts/ organisers of events in RAC Arena to discuss the potential to reschedule those events that will be affected by the advice to not proceed with events expecting to attract more than 500 people. At this stage, no timeframe has been given to how long the ban will be in place in Western Australia.
 
Whilst we have been anticipating a variety of scenarios, it will take some time to resolve the arrangements for each event.
 
It is our intent to be able to advise patrons expecting to attend such events of the new arrangements as quickly as possible. This will be done via our web site, through notification directly to ticket holders, for ticketed events and via organisers of events for which they have the patron contact details.
 
Should a ticketed event be cancelled altogether, refunds will be automatically made, directly to the original payment account. All ticket sales proceeds are held securely by RAC Arena and are available for return to Ticketek to enable the refunds.
 
Due to the number of events affected and consequently the numbers of patrons involved, we would appreciate your patience in not calling us or Ticketek, and look out for the information to appear on our web site or for an email from us.

WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT COVID-19 RISKS:

At RAC Arena, we are taking very seriously the health and safety of all our patrons, performers and staff members.
 
We are closely monitoring developments around COVID-19 with both Federal and state health departments.  In a media conference Thursday morning (12 March, 2020), the Prime Minister reiterated the advice of the Commonwealth’s Chief Medical Officer that, in Australia at this time, there is no material risk associated with attending major events and that he is attending the football this week-end.  
 
At this time, all of our scheduled events are proceeding as planned and we are in close communication with the promoters of all our forthcoming events, and with the Western Australian Government Department of Health regarding arrangements we should have in place. This situation is subject to change at short notice in the current circumstances, and advice about any changes will be available on our website.

We have introduced additional procedures around our operations based on the current recommendations. We have increased our infection mitigation routines throughout the Arena, including the following:
  • Our cleaning team is cleaning and disinfecting all points of contact on an increased rotation particularly during the times we host patrons in the venue.
  • For our everyday sanitation and disinfectant of all hard surfaces throughout public areas, we use recommended cleaning solutions that are, at a minimum, 60% alcohol-based.  These have proven anti-viral/bacterial properties and are a hospital grade application.  With each application, a different micro-fibre cloth is used to avoid any cross-contamination between surfaces.
  • Hand sanitiser with similar anti-viral properties is available at a number of convenient locations around the venue. Authorities also suggest we all carry a personal dispenser of sanitiser with us at all times.
  • Additional precautions are being taken in all food preparation and handling areas to prevent cross-contamination.
  • All staff working in direct contact with patrons e.g. security at turnstiles, will be issued with gloves and provisioned to make regular changes during their shift.
  • We have appropriate stocks of all products on hand at the venue.
  • We are communicating closely with all personnel engaged at the Arena to avoid the introduction of any infection by any of them.  We have given clear instructions that anyone exhibiting flu-like symptoms or who has been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case, is to stay at home in isolation for at least 14 days and present a medical certificate before returning to work.
  • We have mounted an in-house campaign in support of good health etiquette amongst all our team.
Should there be any change from the government guidance regarding major events in Australia, we are in contact and working with health authorities so as to be ready to respond to their advice.

YOU CAN PLAY YOUR PART TOO:

We ask our patrons to similarly exercise responsibility for the health and well-being of themselves and their fellow patrons with the following suggestions:
  • If you are sick or exhibiting any flu-like symptoms (including fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath), please do not attend the event.  Pass your tickets to a friend.
  • If you or a close family member have returned from a country or region that has been affected by COVID-19 or is the subject of an Australian Government travel warning, within the past two weeks, you should not attend the event.  Pass your tickets to a friend.
  • If you sneeze (despite not exhibiting symptoms prior to attending!), please capture all droplets in either your inner-elbow or a large tissue.  Please dispose of this immediately in a suitable rubbish receptacle or a toilet.  Please wash and/or sanitize your hands immediately.
  • Please limit your physical contact with other patrons including shaking hands, hugging and kissing cheeks etc.  Maintain some space around you to the extent possible.
  • Please be careful to not share drink containers and other opportunities for germs to spread with anyone else.  Keep food covered and eat it as soon as practical.
  • Please wash your hands immediately prior to leaving the toilets, every time you visit the facilities.
  • Please use some hand sanitizer every time you pass a dispenser.
  • Consider carrying your own personal dispenser of sanitiser with you at all times.
  • Should you feel ill during the event, please distance yourself from other patrons, take care not to spread germs to the best of your ability and either return home or report to your usual medical facility.  Whilst the Arena has First Aid facilities, we are not equipped to diagnose a virus nor to treat suspected infections in required isolation.

TICKETING QUERIES:

Should you decide that you will not attend the event, we remind you that, should you offer your tickets for resale, by law the price can be no more than 10% above what you paid. You may have to accept a little less to make the sale attractive.
 
Should the promoter decide to cancel the event, please be assured that all monies from ticket sales are being held securely.  Refunds will proceed automatically, directly to the original payment account, as soon as the promoter’s contract is formally cancelled.
 
We will email or text you and issue advice on our social media feeds if there is any news about such a change to the current plans for all events to continue as planned.
