Some sellers will charge prices far above the average, also known as "price gouging". We encourage consumers to be vigilant about unusually high prices, and compare your options before making a purchasing decision.

As a second wave of COVID-19 rocks Melbourne, the Victorian Government has updated its health advice regarding the use of masks.

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.

As masks are now in high demand, we've rounded up a list of stores helping Victorians to get their hands on one quickly. We'll update this list regularly to reflect stock levels. Currently suppliers have indicated there is little risk of a stock shortage.

Will a mask protect me from COVID-19?

While a face mask will not make you immune to COVID-19, it can stop particles that are released when you cough or sneeze from travelling too far in the air. According to ABC health reporter Olivia Willis, "COVID-19 is mostly spread via respiratory droplets" and "face masks can help to catch some of these fluid splashes".

Face masks also serve as a reminder to stop touching your face, which the World Health Organization has said is important in preventing the transfer of the virus from surfaces to your nose, eyes or mouth.

Masks will not stop you from contracting the virus, so you should continue to adhere to recommendations on personal hygiene and social distancing when wearing one.


How to safely wear and remove a mask

For your mask to be as protective as possible, it is important that it is worn properly. According to the World Health Organization, this means that the mask should cover your nose and mouth and have no gaps around the sides of your face. You should also wash or sanitise your hands before and after touching your mask.

When wearing your mask, you should avoid touching it or taking it off to speak to others. Once you remove your mask, it is advised that you place it in a zip lock bag until you are able to wash it, which you should do after each wear.
