From 12:01am, Saturday 18 June, mask wearing mandates in airport terminals in Western Australia will be lifted.

This is in line with the latest national advice (external link) from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC).

Masks must continue to be worn on aircraft as per existing requirements, and are still encouraged to be worn in international and domestic terminals if people wish to wear one.

Masks are still required in certain settings in WA, including health care settings, residential aged and disability care facilities, and on public and passenger transport.

People are encouraged to continue to wear a mask where physical distancing is not possible to protect vulnerable members of the community, including those at risk of serious illness from COVID-19 and the flu.

As well as staying up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations, you can roll up and receive a free flu vaccination (external link) for the month of June at state-run vaccination clinics, and participating GPs and pharmacies to stay safe over winter.
