Mask rules change

VICTORIANS will no longer be required to wear a mask when outdoors as long as physical distancing can be maintained.

Premier, Daniel Andrews announced on Sunday, masks would still be required indoors and Victorians would still need to carry them outdoors in case they could not physically distance.

“In short, you’ll still need to wear one when you're indoors and on public transport — and where you can't keep your distance,” he said.

“But if you're outdoors and you can keep a safe distance, masks will no longer be mandatory.”

Mr Andrews gave an example of visiting Bunnings to explain the new rules.

“If you go to Bunnings and you are inside the store, you are wearing a mask,” he said.
