A mall goer has gone to great lengths to protect himself against COVID-19 by travelling in a large plastic bubble, Your Content has learned.

Masks are encouraged but not mandatory in regional Victoria.

The man, from Belgrave, 29 miles east of Melbourne, was filmed walking down the high street wearing no shoes or a mask but the plastic covering.

The hilarious outfit comes as Victoria recorded a record of 532 new cases of coronavirus as Premier Daniel Andrews threatened to shut down entire industries in the next stage of restrictions.

Six more Victorians have died overnight, including five residents in aged care and a man in his 50s. A total of 245 people are in hospital with 44 in intensive care.

The video was posted to Facebook by another local who thanked the man for “making everyone smile.”

Others were quick to comment on the footage with one saying: “I’m actually laughing so hard.”

“How Victorians are reacting to the lockdown,” another replied.

“I think he was just trying to brighten up our lives a bit. Luckily, it was early morning and it wasn’t busy,” a third added.

The Chief Health Officer also recommends people living in the regions should wear face masks.

“You should wear a face covering when you leave home if it is difficult to keep 1.5 metres apart from others,” a statement read.

“Outside of metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire there will be no enforcement on the use of face coverings.

“You will not be fined if you don’t wear one.”
