HISTORY OF COVID-19 CLOSURES
The KSP Writers' Centre first closed in late March 2020 for a period of three months in accordance with the Mark McGowan led state government requirements, following the announcement of a State of Emergency in WA because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following a few cases of community transmission in Perth, the Centre shut again for five days from 1 February 2021, and another four days in June/July 2021; both measures were implemented quickly and worked effectively as circuit breakers to prevent more transmissions and longer lockdowns.
