On April 29, 2020 the Province of Manitoba released “Restoring Safe Services – Manitoba’s Pandemic and Economic Roadmap for Recovery.”

Manitoba provincial public health authorities have recognized that the province is emerging out of the COVID19 Pandemic Phase and into a Transition phase. They outline multiple phases to re-establishing services. In phase 1, and at the discretion of the respective regulatory bodies, a return to increased activity for ‘Therapeutic and Health Care Businesses’ such as Dentistry, begins effective May 4th.

The purpose of this document is to serve as an interim guide for facilities in Manitoba providing dental care to patients with emergent and urgent needs during ‘Phase One’ as outlined in the document.

The guidance provided within this document may change as the Risk Assessment changes (See Figure A).
