The Victorian Greens are calling on the state government to start the “intensive promotion” of some mandates that are all too familiar.
In a conference on Saturday, Dr Tim Read, the Victorian Greens spokesman for health, called on the re-elected Andrews government to introduce an “intensive education campaign.”
“The government really needs to introduce a an intensive education campaign for people to wear masks indoors on in crowded venues, shops, public transport and to improve air quality,” Dr Read said.
“We’re not seeing enough air purifiers in shops and venues, we need to see more open windows and outdoor events and outdoor dining, and we need to be prepared for further recommendations from the chief health officer.”
Dr Read said measures needed to be put in place to protect a fatiguing hospital system.
The party has made their views on the current lack of mandates clear, calling for Mr Andrews to introduce mask rules for crowded indoor spaces like public transportation and planes, as well as events and venues.
