Changes to mask guidelines

There are changes to mask requirements in light of updated public health evidence and advice.

From midnight tonight, all public-facing workers in workplaces covered by vaccine mandates will be required to wear medical grade masks.

In other settings requiring face coverings, actual masks must be worn – bandanas, scarves and tee-shirts are no longer considered adequate.

Masks must be worn at food and drink businesses, close-proximity businesses, and events and gatherings, though you may take your mask off to eat, drink or exercise.
