Fines Of Up To $50,000 For Those Who Don't Wear Face Masks In Western Australian Airports

Fines Of Up To $50,000 For Those Who Don't Wear Face Masks In Western Australian Airports

Western Australia has introduced new laws that require people to wear a face mask when they're in any airport in the state.

The National Cabinet has already made it mandatory for face coverings to be worn on all domestic and international flights.

But WA has taken it a step further and will require all arrivals and people leaving or moving around the state to chuck on a mask when they're anywhere in an airport.

People caught trying to avoid the rule can expect a fine of up to $50,000.

The eye-watering amount of money will be used only in the most heinous examples, however it will act as a deterrent to anyone thinking they might try and flout the rule.

There are several exemptions to the mandatory face mask covering rule that allows children under 12 to avoid a covering, as well as those who are communicating with someone who is deaf.

People are allowed to take their masks off to eat, drink or take medication, however they can only do this if they are seated.

If someone is working alone in an indoor space or office in an airport then they are also exempt and security and airport staff, as well as police, are allowed to ask you to remove your face mask to prove your identity.

In addition to that, if someone is in custody or has a 'physical or mental illness, condition or disability which makes wearing a face mask unsuitable', then they are also exempt. A full list of exempt people or circumstances can be found here.

According to 7News, the face mask rule has been brought in to prevent the mutant strain of coronavirus that has originated in the UK from being spread in WA.
