Our Response to COVID-19
Page updated: Thursday 14 May, 2021. We will continue to update this page as information emerges, so please check back regularly.
The Perth and Peel regions will return to pre-lockdown life from 12.01am Saturday 15 May, following the latest public health advice.
No additional cases have been detected in the Perth and Peel regions since the detection of the last community case on Saturday, May 1.
Pending no further cases, the following restrictions will be eased:
- Masks will no longer be mandatory, unless at the airport;
- There will be no capacity limits for weddings and funerals;
- Major stadiums including Optus Stadium, RAC Arena, HBF Park and HBF Stadium – main arena can operate at 100 per cent capacity;
- Visitor limits for patients in hospital, aged care or disability facilities will be lifted; and
- The 100-person capacity limit for home gatherings removed.
Western Australians are reminded to register their contact details via the SafeWA app or written contact registers at businesses and venues where contact registers are mandatory.
The SafeWA app and written contact registers are vital tools for health contact tracers to more efficiently identify people that may have been exposed to the virus, helping reduce the potential of a wide-spread outbreak.
The safety and wellbeing of both our employees and community continues to remain the Town's top priority.
What is Town of Claremont doing in response to COVID-19?
Roll Up for WA
We’ve all worked together to keep Western Australia one of the safest places in the world. To protect our lifestyle here in WA, there’s one more thing we need to do. We need to roll up our sleeves and get vaccinated for COVID-19. The more people who do, the more we protect our families, friends and community.
If you are 50 years and over, to make a booking call 13 COVID (13 26843) to book your appointment at a COVID-19 vaccination community clinic. If you are not yet eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, you cannot book an appointment through 13 COVID yet.
- Don’t attend a clinic without an appointment.
- You have to be over 50 to book a vaccine at this time, unless you’re in the 1a, 1b cohorts.
- All callers to 13COVID will get prompted after 10 minutes waiting and if they want a call-back, will get one.
- Callers to 13COVID are advised to have their Medicare card at hand when they make the call.

Stop the spread
As a community, there are things we can do to minimise the risks and look after each other.
- Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds using soap and water or alcohol gel.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze and cough using a tissue or a flexed elbow.
- Social distancing - the more space between you and others, the harder it is for the virus to spread.
- Stay home if you are sick. Don’t go to work or school if you have symptoms.
If you’re feeling unwell
If you develop a fever, a cough, sore throat or shortness of breath within 14 days of travel to an affected area, you must seek medical attention by:
- attending your GP (phone ahead)
- visit the Emergency Department (advise staff immediately on arrival)
- phone the corona virus Health Information line on 1800 020 080.
