Dental staff at San Francisco, LA practices must be vaccinated; weekly testing not an option

Some counties in California are requiring dental staff to get vaccinated against COVID-19, with workers no longer having the option to be tested weekly, reports the California Dental Association.

New orders, both issued Aug. 12, require healthcare workers in San Francisco and Los Angeles counties to show proof of vaccination without the option to be tested regularly. These orders are more stringent than the state public health orders, but do still allow certain exemptions.

Compliance with the local orders is required by Sept. 30 in Los Angeles County and Oct. 13 in San Francisco County.
