What To Do When a Team Member Tests Positive for COVID-19

It’s a problem facing so many dental practices right now. Not only are you working to keep your practices open and thriving and your patients safe, but you are also doing everything you can to keep your team members free of the COVID-19 virus as well.

Unfortunately, the same protections you take in your practice aren’t the same ones that all humans take, which means that your team members (and you) could be at risk for exposure … and bringing it back to the practice.

What do you do if that unfortunate event occurs? Dr. David Rice has some thoughts and pieces of advice in the video below.
