Check below the various ways of ordering free face masks and rapid antigen tests (RATs).
Order free RAT kits directly from the Ministry of Health's Request a RAT site.
You can get free medical face masks when you pick up rapid antigen tests (RATs) from a testing centre. You do not need to be unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms, but you still need to order through the Request a RAT website above. Find a testing site that offers free face masks.
As part of the government’s response to protecting Pacific communities from the impacts of COVID-19, the Pacific Aotearoa Community Outreach program has implemented an online order form to provide Pacific communities, and those working with our Pacific peoples, a way of bulk ordering medical grade face masks and rapid antigen tests (RATs) directly from our website:
Important: Please note the maximum and minimum number of masks and RATs you can order:
Masks: Minimum order 1,500. Maximum order 7,500.
RATs: Minimum order 175. Maximum order 700.
You can also choose to order either masks or RATs only.
Please expect your orders to arrive in:
North Island = 1 to 3 business days
South Island = 5 to 10 business days
Any questions about this initiative can be directed to [email protected].
