The State Government recently introduced provisions to restrict the number of people who could attend a funeral in WA. Further provisions were introduced on 7 April 2020.
Under the provisions:
Social distancing requirements must still be observed at any funeral. A person can apply for approval for more than 10 people to attend a funeral, as long as at least four square metres of space for each person is maintained.
For more information on community activities such as funerals, please read the Closure and Restriction (Limit the Spread) Directions on the WA Government website.
The process to apply for an approval to allow more than 10 people to attend a funeral has recently changed.
Applications for an approval will now be processed by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
An application form for more than 10
at a funeral is available on our website.
To obtain approval, the application form must be sent as early as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
