COVID-19 Update for CDHA Members

May 5, 2020

Provincial Re-Opening Announcements

As provinces announce their frameworks and timeframes for re-opening across the country, CDHA is actively reviewing and assessing relevant information for dental hygienists. We know that the priorities of many relate to the supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) and infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance.

In a recent meeting, and subsequent communications, with the Dental Hygiene Regulators of Canada (FDHRC), CDHA was informed that provincial regulatory bodies are currently evaluating evidence and updating IPC protocols to address changes to PPE, general office protocols and mitigation of aerosol production. CDHA recommends sharing your concerns and questions regarding a safe return to work with your provincial regulatory body.
