Perth and Peel will come out of their three-day snap lockdown at 12.01am on Tuesday, WA Premier Mark McGowan announced on Monday.
The decision comes after no new cases of COVID-19 were recorded overnight.
McGowan said the snap lockdown had “delivered the results that we need” in clamping down on community transmission, describing it as a “circuit-breaker.”
The snap lockdown came after an infected man finished hotel quarantine at the Mercure Hotel and spent several days in the community, also infecting a woman he stayed with in Kardinya.
The WA Department of Health released a list of places both people had visited, which included a number of restaurants, supermarkets, an aquatic centre and childcare centre, to name just a few.
That extensive list sent people out to get COVID tested in droves on the weekend.
Speaking on Monday at a press conference announcing the end of the lockdown, McGowan said 29,963 tests had been conducted since Friday, when the lockdown was announced – 13,027 of those carried out on Sunday alone.
McGowan said the job was not done yet, however.
“If you have been unwell or been to one of the exposure locations, please go and get tested,” he urged.
“We need those numbers to remain high over coming days.”
So far, 354 close contacts of the infected people have been identified, 222 of whom have returned a negative test.
Results for others are pending.
Of the 354 close contacts, 50 people were from the Kitchen Inn restaurant in Kardinya, and all 50 have returned negative results.
So far, 329 of 748 casual contacts have returned a negative result.
“Yesterday, 259 people, adults and children, were tested at the Landsdale Early Learning and Childcare Centre,” McGowan said.
“I can report that 212 have so far returned a negative result with the remaining test results back soon.
“The testing that is being conducted has been exceptional.”
While lockdown will end as planned at 12.01am on Tuesday, some restrictions will remain in place.
That includes the wearing of masks outside and in indoor public spaces.
