Refresh Training in ICT
WA Premier Mark McGowan made several announcements on Friday 9th April which are likely to impact the events, performing arts, hotels and hospitality, and travel and tourism sectors.
100% Venue Capacity Reinstated:
From Saturday, 10th April, restrictions placed on the capacity of venues including stadiums, theatres, cinemas, and concert halls will be lifted, allowing these venues to again sell seating to full capacity. Capacity limits have severely impacted on the ability of performing arts companies and venues to mount productions, and the announcement is welcomed by the sector.
New Zealand classified as Very Low Risk:
From Monday, 19th April, New Zealand will join several Australian states as a Very Low Risk travel destination. This will allow Western Australians to travel to and from New Zealand without having to quarantine on return, as well as allow New Zealanders to holiday in WA. The announcement is anticipated to lead to heightened demand on travel advisers, and is welcomed by the tourism sector.
Independent review into the hotel quarantine system released:
An independent review commissioned by the WA government in the wake of the February 2021 Covid-19 outbreak, which saw a hotel security guard contract the virus after undetermined exposure, has been released. The review highlights that sophisticated and robust processes must be maintained in order to minimise risk going forward. The necessity for hotel quarantine measures has driven demand for major upskilling within the hotels and accommodation sector.
