Premier Gladys Berejiklian said that NSW is now at an "absolutely critical stage" of the pandemic and the new mask recommendations, while they aren't yet compulsory, should start immediately.
- The use of face masks in indoor settings where physical distancing is hard to maintain, such as on public transport or in supermarkets.
- The use of face masks (where practical) in indoor settings with a higher risk of transmissions, such as for the staff of hospitality and customer-facing venues i.e. cafes, restaurants, pubs and clubs.
- During attendance at places of worship.
There you have it, folks, if you live in NSW and you can wear a face mask, you probably should be!
