If wearing a mask in all indoor settings, whether mandatory or not, is good enough for the Prime Minister and the Chief Medical Officer, then the rest of the country should follow suit. Here in Tasmania we started masking up this week while indoors, and on the mainland the ACT brought back its own mask mandate. A mask order is also now in place in Alice Springs until 5pm on Christmas Eve. It seems probable that as the crisis deepens other jurisdictions will follow suit.
