PPE: requesting masks from Ministry of Health

The Ministry of Health is currently taking requests for masks sourced from its National Reserve.  Requests can be made through an online portal for those who are struggling to source their own masks.

NOTE: Image may differ from actual product supplied.

There are 2 types of mask that can be requested:

  • N95 FFP2 Particulate Respirator Duckbill Masks (no valve), and
  • general surgical style (ASTM level 2 earloop masks).

More types may become available in future.  If your request is successful, the default allocation is for general surgical style masks.

If you have a requirement for the N95/P2 style, this must be explicitly put in the request within the additional comments box within step 7 of the process.

Do ensure you read the instructions carefully prior to putting in a request ( note the process and delivery lead times etc).
