Bendigo residents urged to wear face masks, but no 'human right' is being breached

Liberty Victoria advocates for the rights and freedoms of people when it believes they are threatened by governments and organisations.

Its vice president Julia Kretzenbacher, who is a barrister, says being made to wear a face mask is not a breach of human rights.

"It may be a limitation on someone's right but that's a limitation that is reasonably necessary for the broader human right of the right to life and the right to health," she said.
