Free face masks for Mullewa

Published on Monday, 28 March 2022 at 8:41:35 AM

Those in Mullewa now have access to free face masks to protect themselves from the spread of COVID-19 thanks to a donation from the Mid West - Gascoyne WA Police Force.

Members of the community can collect them at the Mullewa District Office and City of Greater Geraldton Chief Executive Officer Ross McKim encourages residents to do so quickly before stock runs out.

“As positive COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the state, it’s important that everyone follows the State Government’s directions and wears a face mask to protect themselves as well as others,” he said.

“Face masks certainly aren’t comfortable but they are necessary at this point in time along with physical distancing and maintaining hand hygiene.

“Some areas of the Midwest do not have readily available supplies and services, so this free supply from the Mid West – Gascoyne WA Police Force will certainly make a difference.”

Pulse oximeters are also available for those who are non-Aboriginal and over 65, Aboriginal and over 50, or pregnant. It is part of the State Government’s WA COVID Care at Home program that assists people who may have contracted the virus and are deemed high risk.

The devices that monitor the heart rate and blood oxygen levels can be collected at the Civic Centre, Mullewa District Office and QEII Seniors and Community Centre.

From this week, Mullewa Medical Centre will have a permanent COVID-19 vaccination clinic that is accessible every Monday.

Bookings are essential and can be made at the facility or by visiting the Roll Up for WA website.
