Guidance on Emergency and Urgent Care During COVID-19

April 28, 2020

The Government of Ontario has declared a State of Emergency and issued an Emergency Order, closing all non-essential businesses. Health care and social services have been identified as essential businesses and regulated health professionals, including dentists, are permitted to provide urgent care only.
