Victoria will be bracing for the impending return of the mask mandate and the working from home orders.
It comes as the new Health Minister, Mary-Anne Thomas, who was sworn in almost two weeks ago following the resignation of Martin Foley, failed to rule out a return to these requirements.
Victoria is battling to deal with the spread of Covid-19 and state officials may be forced to implement these measures.

Ms Thomas told Melbourne’s Radio 3AW on Thursday, ‘the pandemic declaration allows me to make that decision and I haven’t yet made it.’
‘The public health team are looking at modelling and they’re consulting with their colleagues and various ideas are floated but no ideas have been taken,’ Ms Thomas added.
