Best COVID-19 face mask deals in NSW and Sydney on day 3 of lockdown
We've gathered together the best deals on COVID-19 face masks for shoppers in NSW – order now and get up to 60% off.
There are currently 170 active cases of COVID-19 in New South Wales, with numbers set to rise over the coming days. People in Greater Sydney have been ordered to stay at home unless you have a reasonable excuse.
Everyone in New South Wales is now required to wear a face mask in all indoor non-residential settings. This includes supermarkets, all forms of public transport and workplaces.
If you're running low on mask supplies or need to replace your reusable version, the following sites all ship to Sydney and New South Wales. Click on the links below to see every available mask from each seller.
Not sure what mask to buy? Here are a few deals that caught our eye from disposable multipacks to protective P2 face masks. Save up to 65%!
Some retailers are selling disposable face mask packs for upwards of $60 a pop. This Amazon deal is much more realistically priced. For a limited time, you can buy 50 3-Ply Disposable Protective Face Masks for $8.55. That's a saving of over 50% off the RRP. You can also score an extra 30% off when you buy 3 packs or more.
These masks from Catch are similar to the Amazon deal above. Each mask comes with triple layered protection, elastic ear straps and a contoured design that's easy to breathe through. At $12, it's more expensive than the Amazon offer, but on the flipside it comes from an Aussie seller which means you should get them a few days quicker.

NSW mask rules explained
As previously mentioned, face masks are now compulsory in all indoor non-residential settings and organised outdoor events. This includes (but is not limited to) the following:
- Public transport (including taxis, rideshare services and while waiting for public transport)
- Shopping centres
- Entertainment facilities
- Banks and post offices
- Gyms and fitness centres
- Hairdressing, nail, beauty, tanning and waxing salons
- Spas, tattoo parlours and massage parlours
- Betting agencies

The new mask rules apply to all of New South Wales, not just Greater Sydney.
If you need to leave home for work, exercise or to buy essential goods and services, you need to wear a mask. The only exceptions are people with physical or mental health conditions that make wearing a mask unsuitable, infants and children under 12.
Failure to comply could result in a fine of up to $11,000 for breaching public health orders. In other words, it pays to have a mask on you at all times.
