The Department of Health is applying a relaxed interpretation of the rules for personal attendance for musculoskeletal ultrasound and personal supervision for positron emission tomography (PET) nuclear medicine imaging services during the human biosecurity emergency period due to human coronavirus declared under the Biosecurity Act 2015. This will allow medical practitioners who are unable to personally attend the patient due to COVID-19 response protocols to provide the service where it is medically necessary. This interpretation will continue whilst the declaration under the Biosecurity (Human Biosecurity Emergency) (Human Coronavirus with Pandemic Potential) Declaration 2020 is in place, which is currently until 17 December 2021.
