Talking to residents recently has made one thing clear – Western Australians are firmly behind the Mark McGowan Labor Government’s approach to our border.
I have been clear in my support of the Government’s decision to close our borders. And I will continue to support our hard border closure for as long as it is deemed lawful and necessary.
I know that it has caused lots of disruption to many lives. To those people I thank them for their patience and understanding during this crisis.
But that hard decision we made at the start of the pandemic has restricted the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
It has meant that families can enjoy time outside of their homes, and in our shops, cafes, restaurants and parks.
As always, your feedback matters – so let me know below what you think of our Government’s response to COVID-19, and whether you support our position on the hard border.
