KDA Sends Letter to Governor Asking for Dental Offices to be Reopened on May 3
The recommendations of the KDA Reopening Task Force, along with the American Dental Association (ADA) Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit, were sent via email to Governor Laura Kelly on Monday, April 27.
Also receiving the information were Dr. Lee Norman, MD, Secretary, Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE); Dr. Dayna Brinckman, DDS, Director, KDHE Bureau of Oral Health; Senator Susan Wagle, President, Kansas Senate; and Rep. Ron Ryckman, Speaker, Kansas House of Representatives.
On Thursday, April 30, Governor Laura Kelly announced the lifting of Executive Order #20-24, which placed a statewide stay-at-home order on all Kansans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, when it expires on May 3.
Now that Governor Kelly has lifted EO #20-24 and the KDHE Bureau of Oral Health has authorized dental offices to fully reopen on Monday, May 4, dentists need to pay attention to any county orders for final reopening guidance.
