The WA Government has announced that commencing 24 Sept 2020 (this Thursday) all events which require local government approval to be held will need to have a COVID Event Plan approved by the Local Government prior to the event.

The requirement does not apply to events which form part of normal business and for which a public building approval is in place.

If the local government believes that the event is high risk, the COVID Event Plan may be referred to the Department of Health for comment.

Guidelines on preparing a COVID Event Plan are available here.

The Form needed to create a COVID Event Plan is available here.

Once approved, the event will also require registration.
