Even this dog can wear a mask properly

Brisbane Water Police have posted a light-hearted image on their Facebook page to reinforce a very serious directive.

The image shows police dog NYX demonstrating how to wear a mask in compliance with COVID-19 health restrictions.

It was posted as new restrictions regarding face masks were announced by the State Government on July 13.

Face masks must now be worn in all indoor common property areas of residential premises in Greater Sydney, including the Central Coast.

This includes any shared areas in apartment blocks including lobbies, lifts, stairwells, corridors and laundry facilities.

Masks must be worn by anyone entering those areas including: residents; staff such as cleaners and building managers; and visitors such as tradespeople, contractors, food and mail delivery services.

You do not need to wear a mask inside your own apartment.

Police warn that fines apply for non-compliance and comment while picture nine in their image depicts a cloth mask, many of which are compliant, some workplaces may require a surgical-type disposable mask.
