Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Sunday that dentist offices across the state can reopen on Monday.
It’s the first time that they will be able to operate under regular hours and provide a full-range of services since the Coronavirus Pandemic began.
“The reduction in New York’s new COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, intubations and other metrics represent tremendous progress from where we were,” Governor Cuomo said. “We have gone through hell and back – we are on the other side and it’s a lesson for all of us, and we need to stay vigilant as we reopen different parts of the state so that we don’t backslide.”
Over the last several weeks, dentist offices had only been open for emergency services.
