The Seventh Amended Public Health Order 20-29 "Limited Recommencement of Voluntary or Elective Surgeries and Procedures in Colorado” was amended on October 19, 2020.

The Order states that prior to resuming voluntary or elective surgeries and procedures​ in dental facilities, the following criteria must be met by the facility and its staff. The dental facility “​must have access to adequate PPE supplies in order to sustain recommended PPE use for its workforce for two (2) weeks without the need for emergency PPE-conserving measures.” Additionally, “extended use of PPE is not intended to encourage dental facilities to practice at a normal patient volume during a PPE shortage, but only to be implemented in the short term when other controls have been exhausted.”

See DORA’s Dental - Safer at Home Guidance and FAQ for detailed information and resources on implementing this order

Please consult the CDC, OSHA, FDA and other federal agencies for additional guidance.
