There are steps we can take right now to protect ourselves and each other. That’s why, from 11:59pm Wednesday 14 July, face mask rules will change for Victorians aged 12 and above.

Wearing a face mask will be mandatory indoors (not at home) unless an exception applies – this includes all workplaces, and secondary schools.

Masks must also be worn outdoors if you cannot maintain 1.5m distance from people who aren’t from your household (such as at an outdoor event).

Exceptions apply, and more information will be available online at Coronavirus (COVID-19) Victoria when new Directions come into effect after 11:59pm tonight.
