Face Masks No Longer Mandatory in the ACT
10 July 2021
From 11.59pm on Friday 9 July 2021, face masks are no longer mandatory in public places in the ACT. The ACT announcement read as follows:
'Although the COVID-19 situation in Sydney is ongoing, the situation in regional NSW remains stable with no new cases and a very small number of COVID-19 exposure locations. As a result, the mandatory use of face masks in certain indoor settings and when using public transport will end ...at 11.59pm on Friday 9 July 2021. '
Although no longer mandatory, the use of face masks is still encouraged when in spaces where physical distancing is not possible, such as public transport or crowded indoor venues.
U3A members may still wish to wear masks when attending U3A courses or events at Cook, Flynn or Hughes or in other venues. This is your own decision.
All other COVID-19 safe arrangements remain in place.
