Full suite of Stirling services resume

12 February 2021

The full suite of City of Stirling services is due to resume from Monday 15 February 2021 pending no new local COVID-19 cases over the weekend.

From Sunday 14 February, face masks will not be required, there will be no travel restrictions in Western Australia (except for remote Aboriginal communities) and mandatory contact tracing will continue, as was planned prior to the lockdown.

From the week commencing Monday 15 February, the City will resume all services, including services and facilities which could not operate under the conditions of the post-lockdown transition period.

Under the State Government requirements, all Stirling facilities and buildings will be operating at reduced capacity, visitors must complete mandatory contact tracing through the SafeWA App or manual contact register, hand sanitiser will be available and thorough cleaning regimes will be in place. Visitors must also practise physical distancing at City facilities.

This is in line with practises that were in place prior to the lockdown on Sunday 31 January.

Services resuming from Monday 15 February include:

  • Stirling Community Men’s Shed
  • Mount Flora Regional Museum (open Wednesday afternoons)
  • Learn to Swim, social sport and children’s programs
  • Education Department’s Interm Swimming Program
  • Spin classes at Stirling Leisure Centres -Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre Inglewood
  • Spa and sauna at Stirling Leisure Centres - Terry Tyzack Aquatic Centre Inglewood
  • Group fitness programs at all Stirling Leisure Centres
  • Facility hire bookings
  • Library services and programs
  • Day clubs
  • Volunteers have the option to resume their valuable services
  • The full range of aged and disability care services
  • Skip bin bookings for all customers.

After the Perth and Peel region lockdown ended last Friday, the City promptly initiated its Post-lockdown Transition Plan, including a wide range of services with COVID-safe measures to meet the State Government’s requirements.  

As was the case before lockdown, public or private events involving more than 500 patrons that require local government authority approval will need an approved COVID Event Plan.

Mayor Mark Irwin said the City of Stirling had already resumed most operations and employees were ready to welcome more patrons through the doors as all operations resume.

“It is fantastic news that we’ve now seen 12 days of zero new local COVID-19 cases and we are hopeful and optimistic that this streak will continue,” Mayor Irwin said. 

“We’ve made our full range of our services available to the community in a COVID-safe environment, including contact tracing measures, reduced capacity and of course, hand sanitiser.

“Our priority has always been the health and wellbeing of our employees and the community, so it’s important that we don’t get complacent. It’s vital we keep using the SafeWA App to ensure contact tracing is accurate and effective if required, should there be any community transmission.

“Thank you to the community for abiding by the restrictions to date, particularly wearing face masks. Hopefully we continue to hear good news over the weekend and in the coming weeks. The City will continue to monitor updates from the WA Government.”
