E-Alert – August 4th, 2021
On Tuesday August 3 New Public Health Orders were announced and will come into effect Saturday August 7. We have clarified that these new orders are sector specific guidelines and do not include healthcare settings.
Dentists and their teams have managed the pandemic very well and are encouraged to continue to exercise caution.
“Unless you are fully immunized, you are still at risk for more severe effects of COVID-19, such as requiring hospital care or even death,” said Dr. Roussin. “We are slowly but surely approaching a post-pandemic Manitoba, but this does not mean COVID-19 will disappear. We need to remain cautious and vigilant in our efforts to stop the spread of this virus.”
Please remember that the mandate of the Manitoba Dental Association is public protection, that includes our patients and Members. We need to stay the course for a while yet.
Dr. Christopher J. Cottick
President and Chair of the Board
