[Disclaimer]
Hi, I can confirm out RACF wears N95 masks all the time, this is because where we are there is alot of community transmission, staff have children at school where there is ongoing transmission, we have been wearing them for months, no end in sight at this point. It has kept our facility reasonably free of Covid. At this point visitors are also wearing N95 while high community transmission, this is continually reviewed.

Hi All,

I am the Facility Manager of an Aged Care Facility in Port Macquarie.
The Department of Health have recently had a webinar in which they have recommended staff wear the P2/N95 mask for 28 day after a COVID outbreak ends.
I would like to know form the experts among us what you would recommend.
As you can imagine this seems extreme and would be a considerable burden on our staff.
