During the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Academy of Dentistry (ADA) issued guidelines that dentists only treat emergency cases through April 30th; some states have mandated this. As a result, thousands of dental practices in New England and beyond have closed their doors.
IndoorDoctor is helping to flatten the COVID-19 virus curve. IndoorDoctor is one of the first private companies nationwide to offer surface sampling for the COVID-19 virus. We strongly support the need for validating the overall sanitation process.
The CDC tells us that COVID-19 virus is transmitted primary by respiratory droplets released into the air and that the virus can stay airborne for 3+ hours. This leaves us all vulnerable to indoor COVID-19 transmission long after someone with symptoms vacates the room.
Did you know that Carbon Monoxide (CO) exists in your home? Many of my clients will act surprised since their home detector has not gone off. You and your family could be exposed to low levels of chronic carbon monoxide that is not being detected by your home CO detector.
