Western Australia will finally relax its corona virus blocking laws so gyms can be reopened and up to 300 people sit in a pub.

The state will see a significant increase in the maximum collection limits, as a two-square meter rule of distance is set to replace the initial four square meters.

These new rules allow indoor and outdoor gatherings of up to 100 people and even up to 300 people in larger locations.
Larger venues such as pubs, galleries and arcades must be able to be divided into separate zones and must not have more than 100 employees who serve the 300 guests.
& # 39; Phase three is a big step forward for our state. It enables more people to get out with friends and family and enjoy a meal or drink to support local businesses, ”said McGowan.
The residents must remain seated while dining in cafes, restaurants, food courts or pubs.
Licensed venues can even serve alcohol without a meal, as long as the customer is seated at all times.
The relaxed restrictions allow gyms, health clubs, indoor sports centers, full contact sports and training to work as usual.
Skate parks, outdoor fitness equipment and wellness centers may also be used within the collection limits.
The loose blocking laws allow gyms and health clubs to work normally and to allow up to 300 guests to a large venue. Pictured: An empty gym in Melbourne in March
Beauty therapy and personal care services such as nail salons, beauticians, saunas and massage parlors are also reopening.
Museums, theaters, cinemas and concert halls as well as wildlife and amusement parks are opened.

Rottnest Island will also reopen to Western Australians.
Mr. McGowan said, "Thanks to Western Australia's success in minimizing the spread of COVID-19 and our hard border with the Eastern States, it is possible to reduce the four square meter rule to the two square meter rule."
He noted that state borders would remain closed to the rest of Australia.
The prime minister said that the third phase restrictions would exist for "about three weeks" before considering further easing.
Minister of Health Roger Cook urged Western Australians to practice good personal hygiene given the eased restrictions.
He said, "Many are welcoming further easing of restrictions, but I urge everyone to adhere to strict health guidelines, such as good personal hygiene and physical distance, to ensure the safety of Western Australians."
Western Australia will enable more customers within one venue by replacing the four square meter rule of distance with two square meters. Pictured: A Gold Coast nail salon on May 16
