The Prime Minister announced that parts of Waikato will move to alert level 3, step 2 from 11:59pm on Tuesday, 2 November 2021.
The joint Ministry of Health and Dental Council alert level 3 guidelines for oral health services continue to apply across alert level 3, steps 1 to 3.
Under alert level 3 you can provide all oral health care for your patients. The guidelines contain the necessary safeguards to protect patients, staff and yourself. The government is keen to ensure health services are accessible and not delayed causing worse problems for patients while COVID-19 restrictions continue to apply.
Kia noho haumaru, stay safe.
