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:

  • Workplaces
  • Public transport (including taxis, rideshare services and while waiting for public transport)
  • Supermarkets
  • 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
  • Places of worship
  • Residential aged care facilities
  • Organised outdoor events

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.
