Face masks have become compulsory in parts of Victoria, and we’re seeing more commuters wearing them on trains and buses in Newcastle.
While you can get your hands on disposable masks from various retail outlets and chemists around town, lots of people are choosing to buy reusables. And we think if you’re gonna wear one, why not support a local business!
There are lots of designs and styles to choose. From the standard elastic around the ear to the tie up at the back styles – you’ll be able to find one that fits comfortably for you.
Below you’ll find just three of the local suppliers selling reusable face masks and information on how you can get them.
