Who is responsible for enforcing COVID requirements?

Many Newsagents have questions about COVID-19 restrictions – who has to wear face masks, what are the social distancing requirements, do I have to use QR codes?

The exact requirements are specified either by the NSW or ACT Governments. Usually, the Governments publish Public Health Orders which state what the requirements are and who is responsible for enforcement.

NANA recommends Newsagents check Government websites for the latest information on restrictions and requirements. Do NOT rely on social media. Press commentary in newspapers and on radio and television can also be incorrect or confusing.
