COVID-19 Update: “Gradual and Cautious Resumption of Services”

The Ministry of Health’s Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) has clarified the recently revised Directive #2

The Directive says that “non-urgent and non-emergent surgeries and procedures will cautiously and gradually resume in pediatric specialty hospitals and other settings such as private hospitals and independent health facilities to alleviate pressures from deferred care.”

The College has now been told that “this would include regulated health professionals in settings outside of public hospitals, such as dentists.”
