Last week, IDA sent members information about county health departments supplying N95 masks to dentists. Some members were able to secure N95 masks through this program, but others reported that their county health departments offered other types of masks, while some had none at all.
An official with the Indiana State Department of Health informed IDA that ISDH is working hard to try and secure masks for all county health departments. ISDH apologized for any confusion that may have happened at the local level.
ISDH also wants dentists to be aware that if you live in one county but work in another,
you should work with the county health department where your office is located, not the county where you live.
