We are following all the Government and Health Department protocols regarding hygiene and social distancing to make sure that your visit to us is safe and that you and your family are not put at risk.

 

The requirement to wear a face mask does not apply to children (people aged under 12 years), individuals with breathing difficulties, and those who have physical conditions that make it difficult to wear a face mask.

 

Masks and children While the requirement is for anyone aged 12 years and over, families and careers can make their own decisions about whether children should wear a face mask. However, children younger than two should never wear a mask.
For more information about face masks for workforce please visit Victoria’s coronavirus website. Wearing a face mask protects you and your community by providing an additional physical barrier to coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

There are two types of face masks suitable for community use: cloth masks and surgical masks.
