(Natural News) Western Australia (WA) Premier Mark McGowan announced new Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) measures preventing unvaccinated residents from moving. He added that the new rules targeting the unvaccinated “will not be removed any time soon.”
The premier announced these new measures on Jan. 13, which he described as the broadest proof of vaccination requirements in the nation. “Effective Jan. 31, we will be expanding proof of vaccination requirements to a wider range of venues,” he said. According to McGowan, the expanded requirements will help curb the spread of COVID-19 because the state has “seen [it] work in other jurisdictions.”
By the end of January 2022, unvaccinated Australians will be barred from entering public and private hospitals and aged care facilities. All hospitality venues and food and beverage establishments – including restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs, clubs, taverns, night clubs, liquor stores and fast food outlets – will also be inaccessible to the unvaccinated. McGowan clarified that unvaccinated Australians can still dine at roadhouses and service stations, and avail of restaurant takeaway.
Entertainment venues including gaming and gambling centers, museums, cinemas, theaters, amusement parks, zoos and live music venues will also ban unvaccinated residents. The same also applies to major sports stadiums, gyms, fitness centers and health studios.
Prior to the expanded measures announced on Jan. 13, WA had already mandated proof of vaccination for so-called “higher-risk venues and events.” Events such as music festivals and others where large numbers of people could congregate fell under this category.
Residents 16 years old and above will be required to show digital proof of vaccination via the ServiceWA app or a paper version alongside government-issued identification. McGowan clarified that those presenting proof of vaccination using the app need not present other identification.
“Life will become very difficult for the unvaccinated. No pubs, no bottle-shops, no gyms, no yoga classes, no gigs, no dancefloors, no hospital or aged care visits,” the WA premier said.

McGowan doubles down on his hatred of the unvaxxed
McGowan’s Jan. 13 announcement follows his promise of a long-term vaccine passport system, which he made days earlier.
According to McGowan, the expanded proof of vaccination measures formed part of a statewide plan to help citizens feel “confident in these public settings, and that they are only mixing with other vaccinated people.” He explained that reserving the use of public places to those fully vaccinated “reduces the risks posed by unvaccinated people,” which the premier believes are responsible for “bringing the virus into busy populated settings.
McGowan lauded residents who were injected with the COVID-19 vaccine as “less likely to be carrying or able to pass on the disease.” He added: “If you choose to remain unvaccinated – you’re choosing to put yourself [and] the people around you at risk, and you’re choosing to put a burden on our health staff.
The premier’s remarks followed statements he made days prior. On Jan. 10, he declared that unvaccinated WA residents will have a very difficult life ahead of them. “If you, for some reason, have not had your first dose yet – my advice would be to make a booking today. Otherwise, life is about to get very difficult for you.”
The premier defended his move to make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory by claiming unvaccinated people have a higher chance of being hospitalized for COVID than those fully vaccinated.
“We know that unvaccinated people are well and truly enormously over-represented when it comes to cases, serious illness, hospitalizations, intensive care presentations and deaths. Far too many resources are being used to care for individuals who would not take the basic steps to care for themselves.” (Related: Western Australia Premier threatens to create “difficult life” for unvaccinated Aussies.)
McGowan also had strong words for WA residents vehemently refusing to show proof of vaccination. In a Jan. 5 Facebook post, he condemned these “dropkicks” – Australian slang for stupid or worthless persons – refusing to comply. Some venues had been met with angry resistance from patrons who did not want to disclose their vaccination status, the premier said.
“If you’re asked to show your proof of vaccination, don’t be a dropkick. There is never an excuse to be rude to staff – not now, not ever. It’s not the Western Australian way. It’s already been rolled out in some other states, and there is no reason WA can’t do it too.”
