Strict new face mask rules to come into effect in Victoria as two-week grace period ends

-1
Victorians will no longer be allowed to wear bandanas, scarves or face shields as the two-week grace period for the state’s strict new mask change comes to an end on Sunday at 11.59pm.
Premier Daniel Andrews today reminded Victorians they must wear a fitted mask after the deadline or risk being fined by police.
Mr Andrews said health advice around masks had changed, with bandanas, scarves and face shield no longer being “sufficient”.
“Scarves and bandanas in the early stages was an appropriate response,” he said.
“That advice is now changed. We have given the two-week period.
“All Victorians must wear fitted masks when they leave their homes.
“As restrictions ease and movement increases, the effectiveness of masks is even more important and obvious.”
The Victorian government has also ordered a further 1.2 million fitted, reusable cloth masks from local and new factories.
Victoria recorded 11 new cases of COVID-19 and no new deaths today – the same figures as yesterday.
