Masks are an extra precaution to protect against COVID-19 in areas with community transmission. Check your local state and territory advice about mask recommendations and requirements. If you are in a situation where physical distancing is difficult such as on public transport, masks can provide additional protection for you and the people you are in contact with.
From 11 October all Victorians must wear a fitted face mask when they leave home, no matter where they live.
You must wear a fitted face mask that covers the nose and mouth. This means that face shields, bandanas or scarves or loose snoods, or loose neck gaiters on their own will no longer be considered a sufficient face covering.
Please follow guidelines for the safe removal of your mask after being around other people. Wash or sanitise your hands before and after removing the mask, and avoid touching your face.
Face masks are handmade locally by small/sole-trader businesses. Orders are sent with tracked shipping; free contactless pickup from Altona Meadows is also available.
