The Western Australian State Government introduced intrastate travel restrictions from 11:59pm Tuesday 31 March 2020 to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

These restrictions prevent non-essential travel across regional boundaries. 

Exemptions do apply to those travelling across regional borders for:

  • work purposes;

  • to transport freight;

  • to attend medical appointments;

  • to attend school or an educational institution (where necessary);

  • to those who do not have access to groceries or supplies within their region

  • catering for family members; and

  • compassionate grounds. 

For clarity, the freight industry will continue to operate and is permitted to travel through regional boundaries.

People are encouraged, where possible, to assist police by preparing documentation, such as a letter/email/SMS from an employer, to support their travel.

For the WA public, the State Government is advising anyone travelling or planning a trip outside their region to stay at home and to return home if currently outside of their region.

National parks and temporary accommodation will also be closed to tourists. 

Police have the power to issue fines to anyone who chooses to ignore the order.
