ADA Releases Interim Guidelines for PPE

The ADA has released recommendations for use of the highest level of PPE available when treating patients to reduce the risk of exposure. These are recommendations and doctors are also advised to use professional judgment related to treatment provided and the patient’s risk factors. Considering that patients who are asymptomatic may still be COVID-19 infectious, it should be assumed that all patients can transmit disease.
