ADA Releases "CDC COVID-19 PPE and Screening FAQ"

On May 19, the NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH) adopted the CDC’s “Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People” for most businesses and public settings. These recommendations apply to non-healthcare settings. For related information for healthcare settings, visit Updated Healthcare Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations in Response to COVID-19 Vaccination.

With this change comes many questions. The American Dental Association (ADA) has created a "CDC COVID-19 PPE and Screening FAQ" for members. Here you will find answers to questions like, "Do patients still need to wear a mask when visiting a dental office?" "May dental healthcare personnel (DHCP) stop wearing masks in the break room?" and "Should we continue to screen patients and DHCP?"
