Read the COVID-19 Employer Guide to Face Masks

At workplaces located within metropolitan Melbourne, including Manningham, you and your staff must wear a face covering at work, as well as to and from work, unless you have a lawful reason for not doing so.

Employers must take all reasonable steps to make sure that the workplace is safe for everyone. Employers must make sure that their employees:

  • are wearing a face mask while at work, unless an exception applies;
  • practice social distancing at work;
  • wash their hands regularly with soap and water; and
  • follow all other rules from the Department of Health and Human Services.

Employers must provide these items to employees where they are essential for maintaining health and safety.
