"We're just trying to do our part to keep everyone safe and cater for those people who are still out and about," Mr Sweeney said.He said everyone having their faces covered to minimise transmission of the coronavirus would be a little "daunting" at first. Victoria's new face mask rulesWearing masks will be compulsory for people outside the home in metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire from Thursday. Here's what we know about the new rules.Read more"But it might be the new normal that we're seeing right now, so it's just something we're going to have to get used to," he said.Starting midnight last night, almost everyone in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire must now cover their face when they leave the house or risk a $200 fine.Many stores and supermarkets have said they will refuse entry to anyone not wearing a mask.As well as medical-style or reusable cloth masks, acceptable face coverings also include things like bandanas, scarves or handkerchiefs.The new restrictions come a day after Victoria reported a new record single-day increase of 484 coronavirus cases.For the latest news on the coronavirus pandemic follow our live coverage.Not wearing masks 'much more visible' than other rule violationsRMIT Behavioural Business Lab's Meg Elkins said she expected Melburnians to be, "on their best behaviour" from today. "We know that sometimes people do what we 'inspect' rather than what we 'expect'," Dr Elkins told ABC Radio Melbourne. "If it's being inspected, I think people will respond." Reusable face masks had become a more common sight in Melbourne even before the new public health order came in.(AAP: David Crosling)Read more about coronavirus:Don't want to stack shelves? Why the new JobSeeker rules mean refusing a job will come at a costQuarantine guards in Melbourne hotels were recruited via WhatsAppDr Elkins said the reason why the fine for not wearing a mask was so much smaller than that for venturing outside without a valid reason was probably because it was a much more obvious breach of the rules."With masks, it's much more visible when people are not doing the right thing," she said.Victoria Police to 'exercise discretion'Those who do not blatantly disregard the new rules should get some leniency in the short term.A Victoria Police spokesperson said officers would "exercise discretion" for the next seven days as the public health order represented a "significant adjustment". "We understand that the vast majority of Victorians are trying to do the right thing and our exercise of discretion will reflect that," the spokesperson said. "That said, we do expect people to follow the Chief Health Officer's directions and will not hesitate to issue fines to people who are obviously and blatantly showing a disregard for community safety by failing to wear a mask."The spokesperson said examples of this included someone who had a mask refusing to wear it when requested or repeatedly trying to go into a supermarket after being denied entry because they weren't wearing a mask. Huge demand for reusable masks Among the most popular handmade face masks sold by Loooeezee Handcrafts are the ones with AFL logos.(Supplied)Melbourne's Louise Boyd, who has an Etsy website Loooeezee Handcrafts, said her side-hustle had turned into a full-time job ahead of the new mask restriction coming in.Ms Boyd, who has a day job as an accountant, started out making handbags, purses and baby items and only made her first mask in February for a friend who was going overseas. "So then when the COVID-19 broke out, I thought, 'Okay, I'll make quite a few and see what happens,'" she said. "The very first day that I put them up on my Etsy site, the orders were just coming in bang, bang, bang."Among the most popular were stylish black and grey masks and ones with AFL team logos.She said she was now making about 30 every day and people were desperate to get their orders before the deadline. "I just don't have enough hours in the day to even sleep to try and get them done," she said.Don't vilify peopleWhile emphasising the importance of wearing face coverings, Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton yesterday warned people not to take matters into their own hands if they saw someone not wearing one. Can I receive a $1,500 hardship payment?The Victorian Government says there are "no questions asked" for workers self-quarantining, but the criteria to receive the coronavirus support payment are more complex than that.Read moreProfessor Sutton said some people were legitimately not able to wear masks."So please don't vilify individuals or make the assumption that they are simply stubborn and refusing to wear masks," he said. "There will be people with medical behavioural, psychological reasons not to wear a mask. "Certainly don't make an assumption that they should be the subject of your ire." No time limit for mask rulePremier Daniel Andrews yesterday refused to speculate on how long masks could remain mandatory and said they would be required, "so long as they can make a difference"."I think masks are going to be a feature not just of this second wave, but they will be a feature of preventing a third wave and everything that comes after that," Mr Andrews said. The Government has not set a time limit on the mandatory mask order.(AAP: David Croslin)The Premier said that wearing a mask was an easy thing that he hoped people would do even without the threat of being fined. "It's a different situation than it might be in three or six months' time, but right now, it's a small thing, but a really powerful thing, that people can do. "And I would hope that there was no need to be enforcing these things, that it would simply be doing the right thing for themselves, for their family, for their community, and for every single family."What you need to know about coronavirus:The symptomsThe number of cases in AustraliaGlobal cases, deaths and testing rates
