Frankston and Mornington Peninsula aged care workers have been joined by others throughout Victoria in being required to wear face masks. The precautionary measure was expanded across the state after consultations between the Federal and Victorian governments to ensure our vulnerable senior citizens receive the highest level of protection against COVID-19.

Aged care workers in Victoria’s lockdown zones – including Frankston and the Peninsula – had already been told earlier this week they would have to wear surgical masks after a recommendation from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee. The requirement applies to residential care and home support care workers.

To support this requirement, the Federal Government will release a further one million masks from the National Medical Stockpile in addition to the four million masks released for aged care workers on the Peninsula and in Greater Melbourne and Mitchell Shire earlier this week. Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt said his Victorian counterpart, Jenny Mikakos, fully supported the state-wide extension of the requirement.

Since late March, more than 295 million masks, four million gowns, 41 million gloves and five million goggles and face shields have been added to the National Medical Stockpile. Substantial supplies of PPE, including extra masks, will continue to arrive over the coming weeks and months.

Any Frankston and Peninsula residential care and home support care workers requiring masks and other PPE such as gloves and gowns are advised to email here
