Western Australia's Perth, Peel and South West regions have entered a five-day lockdown.
It's resulted in a major change for the way people in these areas live their lives.
So what are the COVID lockdown rules for Perth and the regions, and how will they affect you? We break down the Government's rules for you below.
When can I leave home?
You can only leave home for essential reasons.
Shopping for essentials and medicine
Accessing medical or health care services
Exercise, but only within your neighbourhood for one hour per day
Work, if you cannot do so from home
You also can't have visitors, unless they are there to care for you if you are vulnerable.
There are some exemptions for people who need to travel to care for a vulnerable community member, and on compassionate grounds.
If you are visiting the Perth or Peel region from elsewhere you are being asked to stay there until the lockdown is over.
Should I wear a mask?
First and foremost, you are only able to leave your home for one of the above four reasons.
