Wearing a face mask in Healthcare settings

The Victorian Government has announced an easing of Covid-19 restrictions. As of 11.59pm, Friday 22 April 2022, you are no longer required to wear a face mask in primary schools, early childhood, hospitality and retail settings, or at events of any size.

All visitor restrictions in hospitals will be removed except for mask requirements, with health services able to tailor their own settings based on their own circumstances.

Masks are still strongly recommended when you can’t physically distance.
