Mandatory masks in NSW: $200 fines apply from Monday amid Berala bottleshop fears

Sydneysiders who flout new mandatory mask rules from Monday risk a $200 fine as the rule becomes enforceable.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard has asked police to exercise discretion in handing out fines to those who ignore the new rules.

Masks are now mandatory in shopping centres, on public transport, in places of worship, hair and beauty premises, entertainment venues such as cinemas and other indoor venues like post offices and banks.

All hospitality staff are also required to wear one.

Mandatory masks have been introduced as a suburban bottle shop causes a headache for authorities trying to limit the spread of coronavirus.
