ADA advises caution with OSHA COVID-19 exemption

The new Occupational Safety and Health Administration standard says full COVID-19 protection requirements apply to "all settings where any employee provides healthcare services or healthcare support services," but it allows for some exemptions in ambulatory care settings where everyone is "screened prior to entry and people with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 are not permitted to enter." The ADA says most dental offices should qualify for an exemption since they screen people before allowing them into the office, according to Bloomberg Law. However, the Association advises that practices perform a hazard assessment and keep a written COVID-19 plan in place even if it is determined that the office does not need to follow the standard. OSHA has developed a flow chart to help businesses determine what is required of them.
