As you will be aware, COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving situation. The New Zealand Resuscitation Council has announced this morning that teaching of routine first aid and resuscitation courses should be postponed until the COVID-19 pandemic has passed. See the full announcement below:
New Zealand Resuscitation Council Announcement
The NZ Resuscitation Council recommends that the teaching of routine first aid and resuscitation courses should be postponed until the current COVID-19 pandemic has abated and expert consensus opinion is that there is no longer an unnecessary risk involved in participating in a course.
The NZ Resuscitation Council recommends that the requirement for resuscitation training and re-certification be considered in the light of the current concerns.
The NZ Resuscitation Council will be regularly reviewing this recommendation.
More to follow.
