    With the lifting of the NSW Covid-19 rules, does one still need to wear a mask in the common property of a strata building?

    In a word, yes.  The latest Public Health Order states:

    Masks must be worn in indoor areas (other than places of residence), indoor common property on residential premises, public transport waiting areas/vehicles/vessels, while working in hospitality and dealing directly with members of the public, and on domestic commercial aircraft. Teachers and staff must wear masks at schools. Certain exceptions apply.

    Something very strange is going on. Our concierges are telling residents they no longer need to wear masks on common property but the Public Health Orders say the opposite.

    I suspect a strata manager somewhere – maybe not even in this block – has gone off half-cocked and sent out bad info and it’s spreading fast (because we all want it to be true).

    And there are suggestions that mask wearing in offices will no longer be compulsory (just advised) when we get to 80 percent double vaxxed but no word on strata schemes as yet.

    Watch this space.

    It seems it was a miscommunication – the concierges were told they didn’t need to tell owners to put masks on and that was misconstrued as telling them we don’t need to wear masks.

    But the fact remains, in NSW residents, visitors, delivery people and tradies should be wearing masks in the common areas of strata buildings, until such times as the Public Heath Orders say otherwise.
