You’ve got questions. CDA has the answers. Here are the top 5 COVID-related questions from CDA members.
CDA advocacy placed California ahead of the curve for enabling dentists to vaccinate individuals against COVID-19 when the Department of Consumer Affairs granted a public health emergency waiver on Jan. 4. Other states soon followed, passing legislation or issuing waivers and governors’ executive orders that allow dentists to administer the COVID-19 vaccines.
Cal/OSHA's current regulations on COVID-19-related screening, testing and quarantining apply to dentists, dental team members and other health care workers in California who are fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, as well as to fully vaccinated patients who enter health care settings.
New applicants who meet eligibility criteria can apply March 25-31 for round 5 of the California Small Business COVID-19 Relief Grant. Applicants who applied during rounds 1-3 and were waitlisted are also eligible to receive the grant and do not need to reapply.
New opportunities are opening for dentists who wish to support the statewide vaccine efforts. Dental professionals play a role in helping the state meet the vaccination demand and can contribute by volunteering at vaccination sites and educating patients about COVID-19 vaccine safety and efficacy.
The $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill signed March 11 by President Joe Biden provides billions of dollars in relief for individuals, families and small businesses through forgivable low-interest loans, tax credits, emergency grants, extended unemployment benefits and other assistance.
