When we need to wear face masks NSW
Wearing a mask helps keep you and others safe from COVID-19.
In Greater Sydney people must wear face masks when in certain places.
Greater Sydney includes:
- Sydney City
- Central Coast
- Blue Mountains
You must wear your face mask at:
- supermarkets and shopping centres
- on public transport
- indoor entertainment places such as cinemas
- places of worship
- hair and beauty places
- care facilities
If you are not wearing a mask in these areas you may get fined.
To be safe you should wear a mask at cafes and pubs when you are not eating or drinking.
Carry a mask in your bag so you always have one with you.
Your mask should be clean. Wash your mask or use a new mask each time you go out.
