COVID-19 Update: Transition from lockdown for Perth and Peel region

Important information for WA TAFE students, Jobs and Skills Centre clients, and Department clients

With no further local cases of COVID-19, and strong testing numbers, the Perth and Peel lockdown has ended as planned at 12.01am on Tuesday 27 April.

A range of interim restrictions will remain in place as part of a stepped-down approach. The interim restrictions will be in place for the next four days - specifically from 12.01am Tuesday 27 April, through to 12.01am on Saturday 1 May.

In line with the Perth metropolitan and Peel regions post-lockdown measures, TAFE campuses will open from today, Tuesday 27 April 2021.

TAFE classes will resume, but all staff and students will be required to wear a mask. Lecturers are permitted to remove their mask while teaching.

The four square metre rule will not apply in classrooms and working environments at TAFE.

We encourage people to visit wa.gov.au to find more information. Please follow state health advice, stay safe and check our website for further updates.

Campuses are being cleaned before classes resume, with particular attention to high contact surfaces. Hand sanitizer is also available across campuses in key locations. There will also be a small supply of masks for staff and students in the event they require a replacement while on campus.

If you have been to one of the sites outlined on the Healthy WA website and are required to quarantine, please do as instructed by health officials.

Usual physical distancing and hygiene practices will continue, following the Healthy WA guidelines, particularly those around hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home if you are unwell.

If you are unwell, awaiting COVID-19 test results or in self-isolation, please do not attend campus.

Please continue to use the SafeWA app, practice good hygiene, COVID-safe habits and stay safe.
