Emergency regulations on COVID-19 infection prevention from the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health took effect Nov. 30, and most California employers must now comply with the new, temporary COVID-19 workplace safety standards.
With several promising vaccines for the new coronavirus in various stages of testing, California is developing its own vaccination plan for the state’s population. CDA is asking the state to revise its distribution plan to standardize the list of essential health care workers for the purpose of phase-1 distribution and to include oral health care providers on that list.
The ADA in October released a COVID-19 and Lab Testing Requirements Toolkit to assist dentists preparing to implement COVID-19 testing as part of the patient screening process.
