Single digit cases. No one in the hospital. Very positive news. We will continue with our new safety protocols for the foreseeable future, but this is very encouraging!(5-26-2020) Riley County Local Health Officer Julie Gibbs has issued Order No. 10 which allows all businesses to reopen, and increases the amount of people allowed to gather to 50. This order is in response to Governor Kelly’s announcement that the statewide order for Kansas will expire at midnight tonight. Local Order No. 10 goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, May 27.

This order will remain in effect for 14 days, or until amended, superseded, or rescinded. Large venues of more than 2,000 capacity are not allowed under the new order.

Read the order at www.rileycountyks.gov/DocumentCenter/View/18901/Local-Health-Order-10.

Businesses will be required to comply with the following:

· Restaurants and bars shall close to the public no later than 12:00 a.m. (midnight) except for drive-through, carry out, or delivery;

· All businesses and locations are required to take proactive measures to ensure compliance with Recommended Business Practices as published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and industry-specific guidance by trade groups. Nothing in this order shall be interpreted to require that any business or location open if they choose not to.

· Any businesses or other locations found in non-compliance with this order, or a source of significant disease outbreak, or as determined and notified by the Local Public Health Officer shall close;

“The data for Riley County indicates that reopening can continue,” said Local Health Officer Julie Gibbs. “The number of active cases has fallen to single digits and Via Christi hospital has no positive patients at this time. We ask that everyone continue to follow safety guidelines for social distancing and hygiene, so we can continue to see success.”

People in high-risk categories are advised to take extra precautions and limit their contact with the public. The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

It was our first week back to a ‘normal’ work week in quite a while and I was overwhelmed with the support I received. I just wanted to take a moment to share my gratitude.

First, I want to thank my team for adapting to all the changes over the last two months and being willing and eager to return to work. I am grateful for all of you.

Second, I want to thank all of the patients who came in this week. We have quite a few new safety measures in place and I hardly heard a complaint about it at all. Everyone was so cheerful, it was great to see you all.

Third, I want to thank all of the patients of the patients who did not come in this week. We had over 500 appointments that had to be cancelled! We are doing are best to get everyone seen that needs to get in. It won’t be easy. I appreciate the flexibility and grace that everyone has shown while we try to accommodate all the missed appointments and comply with guidance from local health officials as well as state and national dental associations. I also appreciate those of you who cancelled your appointments because you did not feel well. Thank you for being honest and doing the right thing to help keep us healthy!

Last, I want to thank my family, especially my wife Abby. All the kids are home since school was cancelled for the year and our youngest is only attending day care twice a week. Abby still has to work from home and manage our family at the same time. Somehow, she gets it all done. She’s a rock-star.

COVID-19 UPDATE
April 17, 2020

CURRENT GUIDELINES EXTENDED UNTIL MAY 3RD

Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) along with the Kansas Dental Board and Kansas Dental Association (KDA) have extended guidelines to limit dental care to emergency and urgent care only until May 3rd. This would allow us to possibly return to work May 4th unless the KDHE guidelines are extended again. At this point we can only wait and see. When we do return to work, we will be using extra precautions for infection control. Those precautions will be communicated as we get closer to reopening.

If you have a question about anything that is not an emergency, please call during this time. If you have an emergency, please call the office phone number any time 8am – 8 pm.

COVID-19 UPDATE

CURRENT GUIDELINES: UPDATED 3/29/2020
KDHE has extended recommendations for dental offices to remain closed, except for emergencies, until April 17, 2020. We will follow the guidelines set forth by the KDHE, therefore, all appointments between now and then are cancelled. You will be called to reschedule those appointments. Being honest, I do not expect us to reopen for normal appointments before mid-May at the very earliest.
