CHIEF Minister Andrew is advising Canberrans to be ready for a time when the chief health officer may recommend wearing face masks in the ACT.
“The most effective actions continue to be physical distancing, good hand hygiene and staying at home if you are unwell and getting tested for any COVID-19 symptoms,” the Chief Minister says.
But the fourth line of defence is face masks, he says, particularly for those who are unable to physically distance in their daily activities.
“A further sensible precaution is to avoid crowds. We all have a responsibility to reduce crowding in public areas, shops and queues,” he says.
