Changes to mask requirements in hospital and community settings

In response to increasing COVID-19 infections in the community, we are changing our PPE requirements.

Effective 11am today (Thursday 17 November 2022), surgical masks will be required in public spaces, non-clinical areas and shared work areas.

There are no changes to PPE requirements for other areas. Further detail about which PPE to use in different working situations is outlined in our PPE Compulsory Standards.

There are also no changes to our other operational practices, such as visiting, face-to-face meetings, training or working from home.

Thank you, as always, for helping keep our patients and your colleagues safe.
