Premier Mark McGowan has called a snap Saturday afternoon press conference to update the city on coronavirus protocols — with it understood there is a new COVID-19 case involving a hotel security guard.
The Premier will speak at 3.15pm to “provide a COVID-19 update”.
The latest fears of a potential leak of the virus out of hotel quarantine come as Perth still endures some restrictions following the last quarantine breakdown.
The city locked down for the Anzac Day long weekend after two cases were confirmed emanating from the Mercure hotel in Perth’s CBD.
Exposure sites were pinpointed north and south of river, forcing millions inside their homes for three days, and mandatory mask wearing.
The masks are still in place, and will be for all of next week.
More to come.
