Advice for wearing a mask

July 23, 2020

As of 11.59pm Wednesday, July 22, COVID-19 restrictions in the local government areas of Melbourne and Mitchell Shire will require people aged over 12 years-old to wear a face covering when outside their home, with some exemptions.

The Victorian Chief Health Officer also recommends that all Victorians wear a face covering when outside their home if it is difficult for them to remain 1.5m apart from other people.

We understand some people who are blind or have low vision might find wearing and putting on a mask more challenging or confronting than others. We’ve provided this information to try make this change easier for people.
