New Zealand is operating at COVID-19 Alert Level 2 as of 14 May 2020.


The Ministry of Health has issued guidance to the Allied Health sector which covers Podiatrists – please refer to the Allied Health Professions web page regularly for up to date messaging.

Health practitioners are a high risk group of both contracting and transmitting COVID-19. The management of these risks needs to be balanced with continuing to provide equitable and essential health and disability services.  Key messages for health practitioners at Alert Level 2 are:

  1. Screening is paramount

  2. Physical distancing remains

  3. Best practice hygiene must be applied

  4. Professional/clinical discretion and judgement should be applied

  5. Mitigate all/any risk for clients/patients and self

  6. Patients/clients must have confidence in their health practitioner

Specific COVID related questions can be addressed to or visit the Podiatrists Board.
