NZ Wildfire Guidelines 2021

Just before Christmas, the Ministry of Health published a new guide for public health units on addressing public health hazards during wildfires:

     Response to Wildfires – Guidelines for Public Health Units

This guide includes the (recently) harmonised Australian PM2.5 hourly guidelines as well as brief advice on face masks which are a hot topic now that the Omicron variant has found New Zealand.

As an aside, readers wanting more advice on masks are directed here:
