On July 28, 2021, the Government of Alberta announced changes to the COVID-19 Public Health Actions. These changes, which go into effect on August 16, 2021 include:

  • Mask use for public transit, including ride share vehicles, taxis, motor coaches and shuttles will no longer be required.
  • The 10-day isolation period following a positive test result will no longer be mandatory, but will be strongly recommended.
  • Testing will no longer be recommended for those with mild symptoms for whom a result will not change their treatment. Testing will be available for Albertans with symptoms when it is needed to help direct patient care decisions.

Registered Dental Hygienists and members of the public are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the upcoming changes.

The Key Considerations for Dental Practice Moving Forward During the COVID-19 Pandemic remains the guiding document for the current state of the pandemic.
