I treated a patient in my office that subsequently tested positive for COVID-19. Which precautions do I take?
If a dental office is identified by Public Health as a source of original exposure for a COVID-19 case, or a source of exposure of others by a COVID-19 case, the dental office will be contacted by Public Health.
If you have been contacted by Public Health, in addition to co-operating with them, you should ensure that you and your staff continue to monitor for symptoms through diligent daily screening.
All DHCPs and office staff must screen themselves daily for symptoms and risk factors. DHCPs who develop any new or worsening symptoms of COVID-19 must exclude themselves from the workplace and call 811.
