The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in WA has now crossed the threshold that medical experts believe warrants new restrictions.

There are 314 cases of COVID-19 in hospital, 11 people in intensive care.

The number of new cases has fallen slightly to 12,266 today.

The Australian Medical Association and Australian Nursing Federation have previously urged the state government to reintroduce the mask mandate and other restrictions if the number of hospital admissions exceeds 300.

The government has also flagged hospitalization and critical care figures as numbers to watch, but despite the increase in the number of people in hospital, the health minister said they are still within manageable range.
