Gladys Brerejiklian is Premier of Australia's arguably most important and certainly largest Australian state. Interesting like #45 in the US, she is 45th Premier of the State of New South Wales.
I recall saying to R a couple of weeks ago how I would like to wear a mask when at the Aldi supermarket but I would feel a bit embarrassed wearing a mask.
Then our State Premier ordered us to wear a mask once outside our home and we have. You can remove you mask to eat, drink or smoke when outside, if you don't have a medical exemption. That is it. No other exceptions. Compliance has been high with only my opinion, young tradies on work sites not masked up. They are at times doing hard physical labour and I am sure they struggle with masks. But what I have also observed about young tradies, they are not socially distancing at all. Note, Tradies are manual workers on building sites, or those who attend to fix your plumbing or wiring, or install something in your home.
So Gladys, take the bull by the horns and order Sydney people into masks for perhaps four weeks. We quite like being told what to do and any embarrassment will disappear.
