Guidelines for oral health services at COVID-19 Alert Levels

Guidelines for the different COVID-19 Alert Levels are jointly developed with the Ministry of Health within the context of the government's rules for the various levels.

As these guidelines are approved by the Ministry of Health, they are shared with oral health practitioners, as well as any updates to these should they occur.

From 6am Sunday 7 March 2021 oral health services will be delivered under the following alert levels :

  • Auckland: COVID-19 alert level 2
  • The rest of New Zealand: COVID-19 alert level 1.
