The ADA News (2/24, Versaci) reports that “the American Dental Association has released an informational handout for dentists on the coronavirus disease, now named COVID-19.” The handout offers “strategies for helping prevent the transmission of suspected respiratory disease in the dental health care setting and answers frequently asked questions related to the virus, based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."

Since recommendations for COVID-19 could change as more information becomes available about the disease, the ADA suggests checking for updates on the 

CDC’s coronavirus infection control page for health care professionals.
