This is a reminder that both Governor Hogan's and the CDC's guidelines HAVE NOT changed for health care facilities.
Both have specifically stated that health care facilities (including dental offices) are NOT INCLUDED in the lifting of the mask mandates. ALL staff members and patients ARE TO WEAR FACE COVERINGS while in dental offices.
You are REQUIRED to wear a mask while at your dental appointment with your MFD provider and staff and follow all office protocols.
