    When leaving home for one of the four reasons (shopping for food and supplies, outdoor exercise and recreation, medical care or caregiving and study or work if you can't do it from home), people 12 years and older must wear a face covering, unless an exemption applies.

    Click HERE for more information from the Victorian government on wearing a face mask. 

    Can I wear a snood, buff or gaiter instead of a mask? 

    • A face mask is always recommended. The Chief Health Officer recommends a mask with three layers that fits securely around the face, specifically covering the nose and the mouth.  

    • However, a fitted snood, fitted buff or fitted gaiter is allowed. 

    • The emphasis is on fitted.  

    • In this instance fitted means the snood, buff or gaiter can extend in a fitted form to snugly fit over and cover your nose and mouth. It must be secure around your neck and lower face with no gaps along the nose ridge or the top of the garment. This is designed to protect you from coronavirus. It must be a sufficient face covering for this purpose. 

    • A loose-fitting snood, buff or gaiter or scarf or bandana is not allowed. 

    What is a snood, buff or gaiter?

    In this instance a snood, buff or gaiter is taken to mean a face and neck covering, in the form of a closed loop, worn around the face and neck. They are taken to be interchangeable terms.
