There have been several additional restrictions announced; however, the most significant is that people 12 years and older must wear a face covering when they leave home. Several exemptions to this regulation apply, and full details can be found on the Victorian DHHS site here https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/updates/coronavirus-covid-19/updated-restrictions-1159pm-wednesday-22-july-2020.
For car wash operators, this regulation will require you to ensure all staff are wearing a face covering (mask) when at work.
