Face Masks

Do we have to wear Face Masks?

The wearing of face masks follows the pandemic orders on the requirements to wear face masks indoors or outdoors.

Currently face masks are required indoors unless an exemption applies.

There are a small number of situations where face masks are still recommended independent of the pandemic orders:

  • Using public transport
  • Travelling extended distances in a bus
  • While serving food
  • Providing first aid

What exemptions apply to wearing face masks?

You do not have to wear a face mask in the following situations:

  • If you are under 8 years of age
  • Where you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask
  • When wearing a face mask prevents you from communicating clearly

Do we have to wear Face Masks when camping within a tent, cabin or sleepovers?

Wearing face masks while sleeping can be impracticable and therefore is at the option of the individual. The vaccination requirements for sharing accommodation consider the increased risk.
