Victoria is easing indoor mask-wearing and working from home rules and bringing back elective surgery under changes to COVID-19 pandemic health orders.
The changes, including the removal of requirements for Victorians to work or study from home, come into effect from 11.59pm on Friday, Health Minister Martin Foley said.
Masks will only be required indoors in the following circumstances, unless an exemption applies:
People on public transport, in taxis and rideshare, on planes, and indoors at an airport
People working or visiting hospitals, and indoor areas at care facilities
Workers in hospitality, retail and the court system
Workers at justice and correctional facilities
Students in year 3 or above at primary school, and workers at early childhood centres and primary schools
People working indoors at an event with more than 30,000 people attending
In special circumstances, such as if you have COVID-19 or are a close contact and you’re leaving home.
Masks are recommended for other workers serving or facing members of the public, such as if you are at reception, meeting guests or serving customers. We look forward to seeing everyone mask free on the coast soon.
For and on Behalf of the Anglesea Team.
