In the circular, Hawari said that “anyone planning to go to dental clinics must take the two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, provided that at least two weeks have passed since the date of the second shot, or to undergo a PCR test within 72 hours before the visit.”

These instructions do not include patients under the age of 18 or cases that require urgent attention, according to the minister, who stressed that the medical staff must maintain the highest safety standards possible to curb the spread of the virus.

 The minister added that the decision was due to an increase COVID-19 cases, according to Al-Ghad news.
