An update on activities at Government House
With the unpredictable nature of the spread of COVID-19 novel coronavirus, all non-essential events and engagements relating to the Governor’s program and the Office of the Governor have been cancelled or postponed.
Contact has been made with all organisations and groups affected by this decision.
The Office of the Governor is continually and closely acting on advice from the Western Australian Government and the Department of Health WA as this situation progresses.
For all information and updates about COVID-19, you are urged to follow the advice of Department of Health WA (www.health.wa.gov.au) and the Department of Premier and Cabinet (www.wa.gov.au/government/coronavirus-covid-19).
The Governor, and the Office of the Governor, place paramount importance on the safety and wellbeing of the community at this present time and encourage all West Australians to show kindness to each other and to follow expert advice.
The primary function of the Office is to provide personal, administrative and logistical support which enables the Governor to perform constitutional, ceremonial and community duties.
The Office of the Governor is led by the Official Secretary and operates in four streams:
- Events and Engagement
- Estate Management
- Strategic Program Management; and
- Corporate Services
The Office manages the Governor’s active program of engagement and hospitality, and is committed to managing the Government House and Grounds as a significant cultural heritage asset for the community of Western Australia.
