Masks to be worn by all Aussies!

Hi everyone, I read in todays Melbourne Herald Sun newspaper that all Australians (and travellers from other swine flu areas) are being given masks on arrival in Bali to wear for 3 days...has anyone encounted this and how do they enforce it. We will be travelling in 4 weeks time with our 20 month old son who struggles to leave a hat on, so I can only imagine the nightmare we will have trying to keep his gorgeous face covered by a mask...is this true or just newspaper hype??????? Parkers

Parkers, yes it's true but it won't be enforced nor will their be any penalty for not wearing a mask. So don't worry, your toddler will be fine. It's just a precaution the government is taking to help stop the spraed of swine flu. If you go to the Sydney Morning Herald website smh.com.au and scroll down to their travel section there is a story about this today.
