Community Cricket Protocols
Given the ongoing high number of cases of COVID-19 in the community, it continues to be important to continue to apply all COVID Safe practices and ensure these are communicated widely to everyone involved with your club and association.
It is also important that your club and association are ready to respond to any potential COVID-19 positive cases that may impact your club or association.

Reduction of Proof of Vaccination Requirements
From Friday 29 April 2022, proof of vaccination requirements relaxed across Western Australia.
Importantly, although a proof of vaccination is no longer a State Government requirement to enter licensed premises, clubs and associations must still follow the instructions and requirements of each individual venue they use and are strongly encouraged to make contact with the body that manages any facility prior to the next use.
The WACA Ground
To align with the recent announcement of the new base line public health levels, effective immediately, proof of vaccination will no longer be required for anyone entering the WACA Ground.
Thank you to everyone for their support, understanding and cooperation as we moved through WA’s Safe Transition Plan ensuring the health and safety of the community.
