CDC and Department of Health Mask Mandate – 7/1/21

Please note the latest update below from the CDC and Department of Health regarding mask mandate.

Despite the lifting of the state’s mask order earlier this week (June 28), please note that there has been no change to the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s (DOH) guidance for health care settings, including dentistry, so nothing has changed for you, your staff, your patients or other visitors at your offices.

The DOH Guidance for Dental Health Care Personnel from June 3, 2020 remains in effect for dental practices in Pennsylvania. As part of this DOH guidance, the CDC Interim Prevention and Control Guidance for Dental Settings During the COVID-19 Response (last updated Dec. 4, 2020) also remains in effect.
