No COVID-related Mask Requirements for Dental Offices

VDA members have asked if the end of the federal public health emergency impacts their office masking policies. 

There are no COVID-related requirements for dental practices. Mask mandates ended long ago, well before the end of the federal public health emergency. The only flexibilities related to the public health emergency are for Medicare billing, telehealth, and things of that nature. COVID is over as far as any protective measures, requirements, or recommendations.
