Face masks “strongly recommended”: NSW Health

Due to increasing COVID-19 case numbers in the state, NSW Health strongly recommends people in NSW wear a mask at all times when in indoor areas.

The areas where masks should be worn include shopping centres, supermarkets and retail services, public transport, healthcare facilities and aged care facilities.

Remember, COVID-19 spreads more easily indoors and in settings where you can’t physically distance.

Situations where mask use is not expected include in your home, infants or young children unable to tolerate mask use and where there is a relevant medical condition.

There are more than 300 COVID-19 testing locations across NSW, many of which are open seven days a week.
