Nationals Member for Ovens Valley Tim McCurdy has called for masks to no longer be required outdoors in regional Victoria.
Mr McCurdy said that with compliance with social distancing, high vaccination rates and plenty of space, the time was right to remove masks outdoors in regional Victoria.
“It is time to get rid of the requirement to wear masks outdoors in regional Victoria,” Mr McCurdy said.
“Ovens Valley residents and regional Victorians have more than done their bit to comply with coronavirus restrictions and to get vaccinated.”
In Parliament last week, The Nationals called for masks to no longer be required in regional Victoria.
“With high vaccination rates in our regional communities and where people can socially distance, masks outdoors need to be a thing of the past,” Mr McCurdy said.
“Regional Victorians should not have to wait to take this step with Melbourne.”
