Right now, it's mandatory to wear masks across multiple states to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In NSW, it's a requirement for anyone leaving the house to wear a face mask, except for when exercising. The same rules apply in ACT and Victoria.
In Queensland, residents must carry a face mask at all times and wear them in most indoor and outdoor spaces, if they've been in South East Queensland since 1am, June 29, unless 14 days have passed since they were last in the area.
In South Australia, you need to wear a mask in indoor public spaces, and in Tasmania and Western Australia, there are a few circumstances (including when at an airport) where face masks are required.
Watch: Face masks are now mandatory for Melbourne and Mitchell Shire residents. Post continues below.
Since these updated rules, we've gathered all the information you need to know about what type of mask to buy, where to buy one, and why your skin is becoming so crappy underneath them.
Do I need to wear a mask?
Short answer: yes, probably.
But make sure to check the Australian Government Department of Health website to see whether the rules apply to your state.
