See the latest about COVID-19 and donating blood in Queensland.

Should donors from Queensland be wearing masks when they come in to donate?

From the 4th March face masks are no longer mandatory to donate blood. However, we continue to recommend donors wear masks when donating blood. This is to ensure the safety of our staff and donors whilst donating.

Please note because of the reduced ability to physically distance in mobiles, staff and donors must wear a face mask when donating at a mobile blood donation centre in all states.

Will masks be provided for donors or should they supply their own?

Please bring your own face mask. We strongly encourage donors to wear medical masks such as a single use surgical mask, if possible, as cloth masks can vary more in effectiveness. However, if you do not have one or you wish to wear a surgical face mask, we will provide you with one.
