To ensure national consistency this Direction applies to local government venues and facilities. It affects libraries, indoor sporting venues, theatres and other cultural

This is a time when we must all take leadership roles in setting the example for, and providing guidance to, members of the community. I appreciate the efforts that you are taking in this regard.
If you have any questions, please email LGresponse@dlgsc.wa.gov.au
