Freedom for VICTORIA! Dan Andrew’s hated mask mandate is finally SCRAPPED and all surgery resumes


They’re widely credited with reducing COVID-19 transmission, but they’re also responsible for countless bungled coffee orders, and even a special type of acne.

When masks are no longer required in most places in Victoria from 11.59 Friday, it’s likely most people will breathe easier.

The mask mandate has been in place in some form since July 2020, but will soon only be required in limited situations, such as on public transport, taxis, and in airports and hospitals.

Some groups of workers will also have to keep wearing masks, including hospitality and retail workers, people who work in primary schools and early childhood centres, and justice and correctional facility staff.

High school students will also be allowed to ditch their masks, but primary school students in grades three to six will still have to wear them for now.

That’s due in part to the lower vaccination rate in children aged five to 11 which stands at 54.5 per cent having had at least one dose.

That’s compared to a double-jab rate of 93.9 per cent for Victorians aged 12 and above.

People who have contracted COVID-19 and their close contacts will also have to wear masks outside their homes.

Also from midnight Friday, people are no longer being told to work from home.

The state’s remaining restrictions on elective surgery will soon lift on Monday, with both public and private hospitals able to resume all surgery.
