A new wave of COVID-19 infections is developing throughout Australia, including in Canberra and the ACT. As such, you may naturally have a reinvigorated interest in protective measures you can take against the virus.
Though they have fallen by the wayside somewhat in government regulations and general use, health officials and professionals continue to attest to the value of wearing face masks. The practice is still mandatory in several settings in Canberra and the ACT.
