DLGSC – Sport and Recreation Department update

Grant Trew, Senior Policy Officer – Sport and Recreation has advised for Perth and Peel Region:

I can confirm that masks must be worn at indoor venues at all times.  This includes during vigorous indoor activities.  We understand that this may be problematic for some sports like squash but the decision was based on health advice.

We look forward to a safe and considered return to sport and active recreation as soon as possible.
