I'm happy to be proven wrong, but nothing I've read has indicated otherwise

There's some talk about possibly making them mandatory in certain situations going forward but you've actually picked 2 countries whose mask usage/requirements has been FAR lower than the rest of the world. They've had success with the virus, but it's had almost nothing to do with mask requirements, because there never were any.

Here's an article from 6/24

Until now, the official advice in Australia, including from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, has been that you don’t need to wear a face mask unless you are sick with Covid-19 symptoms or looking after someone who might have the virus.

As recently as 9 June, deputy chief medical officer Dr Nick Coatsworth said it would be reasonable for vulnerable people with no option but to ride public transport to wear a mask, but “we don’t think that general, healthy members of the community need to be considering wearing masks in that context”.
