Restrictions to lift 11.59pm tonight
The Victorian Government has announced that the five day restrictions imposed last Friday will end at 11:59pm tonight.
This means that dentists can return to ADA Level 1 restrictions tomorrow. There are still a number of restrictions that will remain in place. Masks are still mandatory inside, and outside where social distancing is not possible.
Patients will still be required to wear a mask in the waiting room, and staff will be required to wear a mask at all times.
We are pleased with today's announcement and understand that the snap lockdown was difficult for the profession. We will continue to keep members updated.
