Can I wear a mask if I’m donating?

You will need to wear a mask when donating in areas where face masks are mandated by government. There are currently many areas in Australia where face masks are mandated whilst donating. Please see the relevant state or territory section for further information. Masks are also required in mobiles because the ability to physically distance in the mobiles may be decreased at times. Where there is community transmission we strongly encourage our donors to wear a single use surgical mask when they donate, as cloth masks can vary in effectiveness. We can provide you with a surgical mask if you do not have one. 

If you’re donating in an area where face masks aren’t required, you may still wear a mask during the entire donation process if you would like to. This can be a surgical mask or a cloth mask.
