Following the WA Government’s announcement regarding the Perth and Peel region entering a circuit-breaker lockdown for a minimum of four days from midnight tonight, Racing and Wagering Western Australia (RWWA) can confirm that racing, trialling and trackwork will continue under the following strict bio-security measures, irrespective of location:
Any essential persons required to travel in and out of the Perth and Peel region for the purposes of attending trials or race meetings are required to apply for a G2G pass (www.g2gpass.com.au) as soon as possible. In the interim, Letters of Authority will be sent out from RWWA to trainers, jockeys and drivers with runners engaged at trials or race meetings who are required to cross regional boundaries.
RWWA will enlist Compliance Support Officers to be at racecourses, to assist industry participants as well as RWWA and club staff with precautionary measures on-course, including:
Compliance Support Officers will act under the powers of the stewards and the Rules of Racing.
Any persons who have attended an exposure site or who feel unwell should not attend a WA racetrack and should attend a COVID-19 clinic for testing.
RWWA would like to thank the industry for their ongoing patience and understanding as we navigate through these unprecedented times.
