05 Jul Airo AV Writes: Bridgeport Dental to Re-open Following Positive Staff Test
Bridgeport Dental Clinic and Panhandle Unified Command have worked closely in preventing any potential concerns for employees, their families, and the community as they remain committed towards mitigating any further risk and keeping everyone safe and healthy.
The informed decision to reopen the dental clinic on July 7, 2020 will allow for ample recovery time of employees in accordance with the health district’s and CDC’s COVID-19 recovery criteria. Additionally, the dental clinic has remained stringent with the continued implementation of safety protocols through wearing of proper personal protective equipment (PPE) like masks and face shields, sanitizing and disinfecting practices, social distancing when possible, frequent handwashing and sanitizing, and monitoring of symptoms.
These are trying times for businesses and communities and the dental clinic looks forward to reopening next week to provide important services to Bridgeport and the surrounding area!
