The Fourth Amended Public Health Order 20-29 "Limited Recommencement of Voluntary or Elective Surgeries and Procedures in Colorado” was amended on July 25, 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.”
DORA’s Dental - Safer at Home Guidance and FAQ provides additional detailed information and resources.
Please consult the CDC, OSHA, FDA and other federal agencies for additional guidance.
