As you will be aware, the Wellington region moved to Alert Level 2 at 6:00pm on 23 June 2021. The rest of the country remains in Alert Level 1. Alert Level settings will be reviewed on Sunday 27 June 2021.
In response the Ministry of Health is prioritising PPE supply to the Greater Wellington region following the Alert Level 2 escalation. Contingency supply provided in March 2021, will be sufficient to cover the immediate response across the health and disability sectors nationwide.
Please visit the Ministry of Health website for information on the Principles of Supply or email any questions about PPE to COVID.HealthSupplyChain@health.govt.nz where they will be referred to the appropriate subject matter expert for response.
If you need to make contact with HCL or Onelink regarding PPE, the contact details at HCL for those located outside the Northern Region are email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0800 657775. For those located within the Northern Region, Onelink’s contact details, are email@example.com or phone 09 815 2612.
Thank you for your support and importantly thank you for the work you are doing to help keep New Zealand safe.
