Aerosols, mandatory, fogging


The Corona pandemic fundamentally changed the world of business, communication, healthcare delivery and infection control in the last 2-3 years. Dentistry, which was already a high-risk category during the HIV pandemic went into a lockdown that saw many practices close or offer very limited non-aerosol generating procedures (non-AGPs) during this period. The science and best practice also changed significantly from an initial period where interventions such as fogging, mandatory testing with the slightest presentation of symptoms, isolation of suspected covid-19 infected patients, etc resulted in closure or limited scope of practice
being offered at most private and public facilities. SARS CoV-2 is mainly transmitted through droplets and aerosol particles.
