The Latest: Masks Now Required For All Of Australian State

Questions now.

Andrews explaining the new exercise allowances. If you’re at work, you can go for a walk or a run etc within 5km as long as you have your permit on you.

Public gatherings – now allowed in small numbers – do not mean your front or backyard. It means “in public places”.

Rules around face coverings have been strengthened. From the press statement:

“Victorians will now be required to wear a fitted face mask, covering the nose and mouth. Some of the concessions we made as we adjusted to this new normal – things like wearing a scarf or a bandana or a face shield – will no longer apply.”

Andrews declines to make any announcement on the possibility of face mask rules relaxing. He says he recognises that as it gets warmer the masks get more uncomfortable, but the benefits are really clear.

“I’m a hold out when it comes to mask, I think they play and important part and they’re not going anywhere soon,” he says. But the question of where they’re used, such as workplaces and outdoor parks, is not settled and he’ll listen to health experts.
