When the United Nations declared 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, little did we know we’d be demonstrating our skills and professionalism with the world watching.
As our acknowledgement of the work you do, members are being sent an ANMF-branded reusable face mask to wear outside work.
Due to the huge volume of masks to manufacture and mail, members will be receiving their mask in batches. To date 70,000 masks have been sent to members’ homes, with the remaining 21,000 over the next several weeks.
These reusable masks:
- comply with DHHS recommendations for three layers (outer layer: polyester/cotton, middle layer: polyester mesh and inner layer: 100% cotton)
- can be machine washed (warm) and tumble dried (low heat) if you don’t have time to handwash or air dry
- are made in Melbourne by 100% unionised workers.
Feel free to share a selfie wearing your mask on your social media accounts. Just tag @anmfvic in your post/tweet.
