Free paper surgical masks available for regional WA


To continue with the State Government's support to the Community Services Sector, the Department of Communities has partnered with WACOSS to facilitate the distribution of masks at no cost to community services organisations at a number of regional locations that previously missed out due to limited distribution networks. 

The masks are available to any organisations across these regions that would like an allocation, with the intent to distribute the masks as evenly as possible. Masks will be made available at the Department of Communities regional office locations outlined below.

Organisations can collect supplies of face masks from one of the following Department of Communities regional locations. Masks will be made available from the collection dates listed below.
