While the Victorian government announced that masks are mandatory for all residents, NSW has not yet enacted such restrictions, but it always pays to be prepared.
Lithgow residents have also been preparing and creating their own face masks for residents around the area.
While face masks don't stop the coronavirus they do help in the protection against it for yourself and others.
We have compiled a list of some of the places you can get your own face mask locally.
Bunnings or the chemist
In addition to these locally-produced masks. Bunnings and Lithgow's pharmacies should have medical face masks in stock as well. It pays to call ahead and check on stock.
If you are looking for something closer to home, Sue Murdoch from Nanna's Touch is also making and selling the face masks.
"I began making masks in March after family and friends asked me to do them, I only make the pleated version and have a range of fabrics and colour options to choose from,"
"Usually from my already made range I make a bulk amount together and although I haven't timed making a single mask, I have made 50 in one day."
Price: $6 per mask
Contact: My contact number is 0409765601 and I'm at 131 Chifley Rd Lithgow
"Proceeds from the sales will go to my Community Connections social group activities," she said.
According to Ms Murdoch it has been hard to source the elastic since a lot of people have been in the process of creating masks.
"But it has been really good, I've been sending them off to Queensland, other parts of NSW, I've probably made around 800 so far," she said.
Pick of the Scrunch
Just outside of Lithgow and a bit before Bathurst, Pick of Scrunch has been working hard to create face masks for those in need.
"This is new, we specialise in scrunchies but with the recent demand for masks from customers we have added this to our range," she said.
