Face masks are not required to be worn in SCV buildings, however it is strongly recommended you wear one where you cannot keep 1.5 metres distance from others
From 11.59pm, Sunday 17 January 2021, face masks are no longer mandatory in all public indoor settings, however you should always carry a face mask with you when you leave home unless you have a lawful reason not to.
Face masks are not required to be worn indoors in Supreme Court of Victoria (SCV) buildings but it is strongly recommended you wear one whenever you cannot keep 1.5 metres distance from others, particularly in confined spaces such as the lifts. Masks can be provided to you at the security screening point if required.
