Earlier this month, the Alberta Government launched its International Border Testing Pilot Program (the Pilot). The Pilot allows eligible international travellers returning to Alberta, at select airport and border crossings, to quarantine for less time if they test negative for COVID-19 and commit to following specific public health and testing measures.
All health regulatory colleges have been informed that healthcare workers are prohibited from participating in the Pilot. This means that dental assistants are not eligible to participate in the Pilot. As a dental assistant, you must follow the COVID-19 Return to Work Decision Chart For Healthcare Workers.
