Wearing face masks and the Law

Updated: May 10

With the new mandatory face masks law that came into effect on 24 August 2021, it is natural to feel anxious if you are unable to wear a mask and with so much information being shared on social media, it can also be very confusing as to whether you should be wearing a face mask or not.


We encourage you to source your information from a reputable source such the official New Zealand government site, your GP, or your support worker who can give you government advice or point you in the right direction.
