The CDC recently updated its guidance on when you can end quarantine after a high-risk COVID exposure. In this episode of In the Sterilization Room with Jackie, infection prevention expert Jackie Dorst, RDH, BS, explains how the guidance has changed and discusses how, for now, the guidance doesn’t apply to the orthodontic team. She also talks about when/if this guidance will eventually apply to the dental health profession. 

Also in this episode, Jackie announces the new scholarship she is sponsoring for orthodontic team members to attend the upcoming virtual OSAP Boot Camp. The 2021 Sparkle & Shine Scholarship is for orthodontic team members who are passionate about infection control, sterilization, and OSHA safety and who are interested in becoming a certified dental infection preventionist.
