An update on activities at Government House (COVID-19)
The Office of the Governor continues to closely act on advice from the Western Australian Government and the Department of Health WA in relation to COVID-19 safety guidelines.
The Governor, and the Office of the Governor, place paramount importance on the safety and wellbeing of the community and encourage all West Australians to continue to follow expert advice from:
- Department of Health WA (health.wa.gov.au)
- Department of Premier and Cabinet (wa.gov.au/government/coronavirus-covid-19)
The Governor’s program continues to be kept under close review in light of COVID-19.
Invitations received for the Governor to host events or attend external events in the community will not be considered if they do not adhere with current State Government advice in terms of physical distancing.
