Use and Fitting of N95 or KN95 Masks

N95 masks are the most effective mask to prevent the spread of the Delta strain and accordingly persons are requested to use this type of mask. At a minimum surgical mask must be worn. Cloth masks are ineffective against the Delta strain and therefore their use is not permitted.

Mandatory face masks (N95 or surgical) are to be worn by all persons including Essential Personnel and patrons (where permitted) at race meetings and barrier trials conducted throughout NSW.

Mandatory face masks (N95 or surgical) are to be worn by all Essential Personnel in attendance on a racecourse or whilst working on licensed premises or stables in the Greater Sydney Area. This includes race meetings, trackwork, jump outs and barrier trials.

Government orders mandate that face masks must be worn at all times when in an indoor area of a non-residential premises throughout NSW. Premises include in the workplace, such as inside stable premises or offices.

The link below provides instructions as to how to fit the N95 mask to ensure it is providing the best protection from COVID-19.
