PPE information from the Ministry of Health: What’s important for you to know about PPE.

Information on masks has been updated. Please check our COVID-19 Guidance page for current guidelines around face coverings. Carers NZ recommends wearing a face covering in situations where applicable, to protect yourself and others. However we also understand that this isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ issue: carers or the person(s) they are caring for, may have good reasons for not wearing a mask. The Ministry of Health has provided exemption cards which you can download and print here.
