From midnight tonight, the Perth and Peel regions will return to normal, as the final post-lockdown restrictions lifting.

There will be no more mask requirements, and an end to a limit on crowds.

Service restrictions will be axed, along with the cap on hospital or aged care visits.

Dancing is back on the cards and major events can also return to the state.

“We’re all just relieved to open our doors and let people back in,” Windsor Hotel manager Max Fox-Andrews said.

Group classes at gyms will be freed from the two-square-metre rule and WA will open its border to the Northern Territory, but New South Wales and Queensland remain blocked off.

The lockdown was a relatively short one but small businesses were once again hit hard.

“It’s a hard enough business as it is already,” Mr Fox-Andrews said.

“And to have to close down for two weeks and notify all of our staff that they can’t come to work has been really tough.”

Vaccinations are key to ending the need for lockdowns, Premier Mark McGowan has said.

Just 8.8 per cent of WA’s population is fully vaccinated, significantly less than the rest of the country.
