MINISTRY OF HEALTH & AHANZ MEETING 27 AUGUST 2020 —
COVID-19 UPDATES & INFORMATION


Yesterday, The President and Executive Officer attended an AHANZ meeting with Martin Chadwick.  The Ministry is looking at a 12-18 month horizon and working on how to maintain as much normalcy as possible for managing patients in further outbreaks, including what more can be done with Telehealth and managing face to face appointments.  Mask usage has been determined to be an added level of protection, however mask hygiene is extremely important.  Misinformation has also been a challenge for the Ministry.  Please ensure that all of your information is coming from reputable sources, such as the Ministry of Health and World Health Organisation.
