From 19th July 2021, the government is lifting all remaining restrictions in England, including mandatory mask-wearing and social distancing requirements.
In what many feel are mixed messages; the government has also said that ‘just because you don’t have to wear masks and socially distance; it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t continue to do so.’ Many people are still not yet fully vaccinated, so cutting the virus transmission is still important.
At Jenkins Dental Practice we will continue to act cautiously and we will maintain protocols that aim to keep our patients, our team, their families, and the wider community as safe as possible. This has been our aim throughout the pandemic and remains essential during the current situation of rapidly rising infections.
We are asking everyone visiting our practice to:
– Wear a face covering, unless exempt
– Maintain social distancing
– Use hand sanitiser that is available throughout the building
– Complete the health screening questionnaire online before each visit to the practice, where possible. Please do not worry if you cannot access this our team can contact you prior to your appointment or will ask you on arrival at the practice.
In surgery, we will maintain the same protocols, including our vigorous environmental cleaning, use of extra ventilation, and added fallow time as well as appropriate PPE.
We are awaiting further guidance from our Chief Dental Officer in England which will likely be published in September. The timing of this is likely to be in line with the evolving situation.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation and we look forward to seeing you at your next appointment.
