Do donors need to wear a mask when they donate in Tasmania?

No, unless you are donating at a mobile.  This is because of the smaller area, so the ability to physically distance may be reduced at times. If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with one.

As always, you’re welcome to wear a face mask whilst donating if you’d like to. Our donor centres are places of wellness, and we have implemented additional measures to ensure that remains the case during the COVID-19 pandemic.

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

If you wish to wear a face mask when you are donating please provide your own. This can either be a cloth mask or a surgical mask.
