Currently, the second wave of COViD-19 is about to hit Melbourne. The Victorian government (in an attempt to be proactive and to prevent this catastrophe), has made a rule that wearing of facemasks will now become compulsory for residents in public starting from August 2nd in Melbourne and across Victoria. There is also an agreed fine of $200 for non-compliance.
Undeniably, this is going to result in considerable demand for facemasks as residents will need to wear masks to be able to go about daily activities. Some stores are already out of stock, and it may be challenging to get facemasks. This is why this article will list various options you can consider to purchase your facemasks in the city of Melbourne.
