Victoria’s acting premier James Merlino has announced the return of indoor mask mandates. Face masks will be required in all indoor settings, except private homes, for persons aged eight and over. Masks will also be required at major outdoor events for people over 30,000 people, except when seated. Chief health officer Brett Sutton was asked why mandates are necessary over strongly encouraging mask wearing. ‘The difference between highly recommending something and mandating something is the level of compliance that we see’, Sutton said. Prime minister Scott Morrison has argued against mandates, saying Australians need to take personal responsibility for public health measures
