You Must Wear a Facemask When Travelling on Public Transport

All Victorians must wear a face mask when travelling on public transport, no matter where they live.

There are exemptions for children under 12 years, individuals with breathing difficulties, and those who have physical conditions that make it difficult to wear a face mask. Find out more about the exemptions.

Follow the expert health advice on how to wear face mask correctly.

All Victorians are being asked to do their part to stay safe on public transport when travelling for a permitted reason. That means maintaining physical distance from others where possible, practising good hygiene such as washing hands often and coughing and sneezing into your elbow or tissue, avoiding crowds, staying at home if you are unwell and getting tested if you have the mildest of symptoms.
