COVID update – March 1, 2021

We are confident that the whole of the country knows the latest update that:

Auckland has moved to COVID-19 alert level 3, and the rest of NZ to level 2, for seven days from 6am on Sunday 28 February.

The guidance for Level 3 is here

The guidance for Level 2 is here

The Board Telehealth Standard is here

The Government financial support link is here

Saying this is frustrating is yet another understatement.  We are hearing from some physiotherapists that this is nearing the last straw for them and their practices.

We have a sense of not knowing what more we can do to assist. What we do know is that as health professionals you are often the ones that others lean on, seek reassurance from and look to for answers, support and optimism.  This can be exhausting when this has been going on for so long and we are not there yet.  For those in private practice – some of you have added financial pressures.

We don’t have the answers other than acknowledging as that as a health professional you will be called on to support others.  What we can do is provide you with information that comes to hand, a place to ring, email or post on the Board Facebook.

While you are supporting those around you we will do all we can to support you.  Please feel free to drop us a line, have a chat. We are always happy to do this.

Please take care of yourselves, your loved ones and those around you.
