CDSBC has received confirmation from the office of the Provincial Health Officer that all regulated health professionals, including all oral health professionals, and the unregulated staff in their offices or businesses, will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to protect patients. We expect that these requirements, and the timeline for implementation, will be laid out in detail in a new public health order.
We are awaiting further direction from the Ministry of Health and Provincial Health Officer regarding implementation of the vaccine requirement and we will continue to work collaboratively with them to move this forward. CDSBC will provide more information as soon as it becomes available.
