COVID-19 Update – new provincial measures
The Government of Ontario today announced a series of new measures to address the recent “second wave” increase in COVID-19 community transmission. Toronto, Ottawa and Peel regions are noted as having high transmission rates.
The College is monitoring the situation closely and we will update you next week.
Until then, you should continue to follow the guidance laid out in COVID-19: Managing infection risks during in-person dental care. To prioritize the safety of patients and dentists, we strongly recommend that dentists in the Toronto, Ottawa and Peel regions use enhanced precautions when providing AGPs to all patients, even those that screen negative.
Please enjoy a safe holiday weekend.
