VDA & VDHA Update Interim Guidelines for Re-entry into the Dental Workplace

The VDA’s Back to Work Task Force is pleased to share an update to the VDA Interim Guidelines for re-entry into the dental workplace. The update reflects the latest science, new recommendations, and collaboration with the Virginia Dental Hygienists’ Association.  

Download the updated guidance.

It should be noted: Although the CDC has modified guidelines for mask wearing in public areas for vaccinated individuals, these changes do NOT currently apply to dental and medical offices in the presence of patients.

The VDA would like to thank all of the members of the Back to Work Task Force for their continued efforts to assist Virginia dental offices in achieving best practices throughout the pandemic.
