Indoor masks mandatory in Victoria

    Sky News Australia – Dec 23, 2021

    Indoor masks will be mandatory in Victoria from 11:59pm tonight.

    “Face masks will be required in all indoor settings, except private homes, for persons eight and over,” Acting Victorian Premier James Merlino said.

    “Face masks will also be required at all major events over 30,000 people. Again, to be clear, face masks will be required indoors and outdoors when moving around, although masks can be removed when seated outdoors. Again, common sense.

    “This is a sensible response which will allow businesses to stay open, bars and restaurants to continue to stay open and major events to go ahead.

    “Masks are a cheap and effective way to maintain the health of the community and it’s something public health experts have been calling for.

    “We’re also going to be recommending Victorians take advantage of the festive season and work from home.

    “A lot of people are already doing this through the Christmas-New Year period. Again, it makes common sense.”
