“The rules are you have to be fully vaccinated,” Morrison told a news conference.
“They apply to everyone, as people have seen recently.
It doesn’t matter who you are, those are the rules. Follow the rules – you can come. You don’t follow the rules, you can’t. Morrison’s remarks followed an article in the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper on Friday, citing industry sources, that West was planning to perform stadium concerts in Australia in March.
Reps for West, who released her latest album, “Donda,” in July, weren’t immediately available for comment.
The vaccination status of West, the 2020 US presidential candidate, is unknown.
In a 2021 social media interview, he said he received a dose of the vaccine, but in a 2020 interview with business magazine Forbes, he called getting the shot “the mark of the beast.”
Australia, one of the most vaccinated countries against COVID-19, has battled an explosive wave of infections over the past month, brought on by the fast-spreading Omicron variant, with around 2 million cases recorded.
Until then, there were only 400,000 cases since the pandemic first hit almost two years ago.
On Saturday, 97 people died, following Friday’s pandemic record of 98 deaths. Health officials in several states, however, said hospital admissions were plateauing or showing signs of decline.
