Mask wearing at Mater

In line with the updated guidelines from Queensland Health, surgical face masks will no longer be required to be worn by all patients, visitors and staff while within in our facilities.

However, you are encouraged to wear a mask and wear it wherever you cannot socially distance and will be available to anyone entering our hospitals.

We appreciate your support through these changes to keep us all safe.
