Canberra First Aid New Mandatory Requirement to Wear Masks

Hi All,

At a press conference this afternoon (27th June 2021), Chief Minister Andrew Barr announced the mandatory requirement for wearing of face masks indoors in the ACT.

Our advice is that our students are included in this requirement.


From midnight tonight all students will be required to wear face masks whilst inside our facilities. If you do not wear a face mask you will not be able to attend your session.

Canberra First Aid staff will NOT be required to wear masks whilst training due to the following point:

  • Clear enunciation or visibility of the person’s mouth is essential

This is the first time that the ACT Government has demanded the mandatory wearing of masks.


There is a 48 hours window for compliance.


Our intention is to keep you updated on this ever evolving situation and any changes to the above.


Take care all.

Kind regards

Canberra First Aid
