Mask wearing in Victoria (Australia)
26 March 2021 | While residents of Victoria will not have to wear masks in public anymore after 6pm on Friday March 26th we are advised that Allied Health are still required to wear a mask as per the Guidance on PPE for Allied Health in Private Practice Settings. Any changes to this advice will be published on the website here. So we are advising members that after 6pm on Friday, Allied Health clinicians and non-clinical staff who have public-facing roles (i.e. receptionist and other staff who have direct contact and interactions with patients) must wear a surgical mask. While it is recommended that patients/clients wear a face mask (surgical or reusable cloth) whenever they cannot maintain 1.5 metres distance from other people, this is not mandatory.
