Last Thursday, 23 July, was the first day residents across the Yarra Ranges were forced to wear face masks outside their homes due to Covid-19.

It came after the State Government announced people living in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire would be required to wear a mask when leaving their home for essential reasons, or face a $200 fine.

The Star Mail sent photographer Gary Sissons out to suburbs across the Yarra Ranges to capture how locals had adapted to their new way of life.
