HISTORY OF COVID-19 CLOSURES
The Centre first closed in late March 2020 for a period of three months in accordance with state government requirements, following the announcement of a State of Emergency in WA because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Centre shut again for five days from 1 February 2021 following a case of community transmission that arose in a security in 'Hotel Quarantine' in Perth.
