Victorians face $200 for wearing the wrong type of mask. WTF?

I have to wear a certain type of mask every moment I’m outside or face $200 fine.

“You must wear a fitted face mask that covers the nose and mouth. This means that face shields, bandanas, or scarves on their own will no longer be considered a sufficient face covering.
To give Victorians time to prepare for this change, these rules will be enforced from 11:59pm on 11 October.”

14 day average cases – 9.5, in metro Melbourne, it’s 0.4 cases in Regional Victoria.

Not even 10 cases a day and we are still forced to wear face masks

 

The announcement was made on September 27 and a grace period of two weeks was offered to allow people to prepare for the change.

“All Victorias must wear face masks when they leave their homes as restrictions ease and movements increases. The effectiveness of masks is even more important and obvious,” Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said.

“I remind people that Victoria Police can enforce these rules.”
