Calls to make masks mandatory are intensifying after NSW Health issued COVID alerts for nearly two dozen bus routes and four train lines.
An announcement on Sunday dictated every single passenger on the X39 bus that left Pitt St
opposite Australia Square at 6.08pm on August 20 and arrived at Clovelly Rd at Carrington Road in Randwick at 6.40pm must immediately isolate for 14 days.
Two people who caught the X39, who do not know each other, have already tested positive for coronavirus.
Dr Nick Coatsworth, Australia’s deputy chief medical officer, advised to “wear masks” during an appearance on the Today show on Monday, noting it had helped to lower transmission in Victoria, which has suffered a deadly second wave.
“My message is if the cases go up, then masks will be mandatory,” he said.
“So, I think, you know, let’s all get on-board with this. It is a straightforward thing to do.
“And we need to do it in Sydney and southeast Queensland at the moment.”
