When wearing a face mask, it is important to use it properly by:
- Washing or sanitising your hands before putting it on or taking it off
- Ensuring the mask covers your nose and mouth and fits snugly under your chin, over the bridge of your nose and against the sides of your face
- Refraining from touching the front of your mask while wearing or removing it
- Not allowing the mask to hang around your neck or under your nose
- Not reusing single-use masks; wash and dry reusable masks after use and store in a clean, dry place.
The public health order includes a number of excuses for not wearing or removing a mask under certain circumstances.
You are not required to wear a mask if you:
- Are a child aged 12 or under
- Have a physical or mental health illness or condition, or disability, that makes wearing a mask unsuitable (for example, a skin condition, an intellectual disability, autism or trauma).
