Just like the rest of Australia, Tasmania is experiencing a spike in COVID cases. As you nervously watch graphs trend up and up, you may be considering what protective measures you can reintroduce into your life to keep yourself, your family and your community safe.

A simple and effective way to mitigate the spread of COVID is by wearing a face mask. The practice is mandatory in a number of settings in Tasmania, and is an easy way to reduce your chances of transmitting the virus to others, should you be unknowingly carrying it.

Considering the extremely contagious nature of the Omicron variant, many health officials are warning Australians to upgrade from cloth and surgical masks to N95 or KN95 masks. KN95 masks are the Chinese equivalent of N95 masks, and are more breathable.

Here's your guide to purchasing N95 masks in Hobart and Tasmania.

  • You are requested to remove your face mask by a person in authority to ascertain or to confirm your identity
  • You are performing or rehearsing for a performance (including theatre, musical or dance)
  • You are working, or volunteering, by yourself in an enclosed indoor space, provided no other person is in the space with you
