Face coverings of all sort are in high demand. If you are having trouble getting a P2 or N95 filtration mask, cloth masks are another option. Here's where to get one.

Under Victorian regulations, it's mandatory for everyone to wear masks or face coverings while out in public. Non-compliance can result in a fine of $200. In NSW, face masks are now encouraged, but not mandatory. More details in Finder's complete guide to face mask rules in Australia.

Will a cloth mask protect me?

While a cloth mask won't guarantee the same level of effectiveness as an N95 or KN95 mask with a valve, the cloth is there to prevent moisture from breathing and coughing from travelling too far in the air. They also serve as a good reminder to stop touching your face.

What should I look for in a cloth mask?

The NSW government recommends if you're wearing a cloth mask to get one with three layers - or two at a minimum.

It's also recommended to have a few masks that you can change and then watch collectively at the end of the day. You may want to consider buying masks in bulk or a multi-pack to ensure you have enough to get through the day if you're going to be out and about.

How to make your own face mask

If cloth or N95 masks are hard to find or out of stock online, consider sewing your own. If you have a small swatch of fabric about the size of a napkin, shoelaces, scissors, and a needle and thread, you can make a mask without additional supplies.


How to remove your mask properly

First, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly before putting on your mask. When you're ready to take it off, do not touch the front of the mask, because it could be contaminated. Instead, remove it by pulling the bottom strap over the back of your head, followed by the top strap. Discard the mask and then wash your hands with soap and water.


What's the difference between P2, N95 and KN95 face masks?

The difference lies in the testing requirements for each country of origin. P2 masks adhere to Australian and New Zealand testing standards, KN95 to Chinese requirements and N95 to US guidelines. All offer nearly the same level of protection, with some slight performance differences, as outlined by respirator company 3M.
