As a child of the 80s and 90s, when people mentioned masks, I thought of movies, such as Jim Carrey's 'The Mask' and 'The Man in the Iron Mask' with Leonardo DiCaprio. Now, I think of COVID-19. Masks are an important part of our lives - from today we must wear a tight-fitting mask. Furthermore, regional Victoria businesses must check IDs of all customers or risk a $10,000 fine.
