Are masks still required at the dental office? Short answer: YES!
As COVID19 numbers continue to fall and mask restrictions are lifted, we'd like to remind all of our patients that masks are still required in healthcare settings, which include dental offices.
The CDC and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy removed the mask requirement for all vaccinated individuals on May 28, 2021. However, according to the CDC, "new masking recommendations for people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not apply to health care settings. This means that staff, patients, residents and visitors should continue to wear masks as recommended in all healthcare facilities.”
We appreciate our patients' cooperation as we continue to follow CDC guidelines in preventing the spread of COVID19. We are happy to provide a mask to any patients who forgot or are without a mask upon their arrival. Any patients who refuse to wear a mask within our facilities will be asked to leave.
Thank you for helping to keep our facilities as safe and as clean as possible.
