In this edition of Te Whatu Ora Waitaha | Canterbury Pānui
The recent announcement of some changes to COVID-19 settings reflects that there has been a reduction in the number of COVID-19 cases
across the motu. It also acknowledges that infectious respiratory illnesses, including influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and COVID-19, are still affecting people in our community. The Te Whatu Ora Waitaha policy of recommending wearing face masks in all our health, disability and aged care facilities remains unchanged. Some areas of our facilities will continue to require people to wear face masks to protect the most vulnerable.
Also, in this edition, there's an update on the Minor Health Conditions service, and one of our own emergency physicians has contributed to a research paper on Kawasaki disease here in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
This Friday is Daffodil Day, and our staff have marked World Photography Day 2023 and the theme ‘understanding clouds' with some fabulous images shared in the pānui.
