Using face masks

Updated 30 July 2020

This page contains information on face masks/coverings and how to wear them, as well as a list of mask suppliers.

From 11.59pm Wednesday 22 July 2020, people 12 years and older living or travelling into metropolitan Melbourne or Mitchell Shire must wear a face covering when leaving home for one of the four permitted reasons.

From 11.59pm Sunday 2 August 2020, all Victorians 12 years and older will be required to wear a face covering when leaving home.

There are exemptions for individuals with breathing difficulties, and those who have physical conditions that make it difficult to wear a face covering. If you are driving on your own in a vehicle for work, you do not need to wear a face covering. When you leave your vehicle or need to interact with others, you should put on a face covering.

If you are travelling with others outside your household, including passengers or other people from your work, you must wear a face covering. You must continue the required hygiene and cleaning practices to prevent coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission.

People outside metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire  are also advised to wear a face covering where physical distancing is not possible. However, if you need to travel into these areas then you must wear a face covering.

See the Department of Health and Human Services website for more information.

If you are unwell, stay at home and get tested.
