All hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, office surgery centers, dental, orthodontic and endodontic offices and other health care practitioners? offices are directed to immediately cease performing elective services until May 8, 2020.
Through issuance of Executive Order 20-72, Gov. Ron DeSantis has mandated the prohibition of any medically unnecessary, non-urgent or non-emergency procedure or surgery in the state of Florida. Dentists would still be required to see emergency patients. All non-essential elective medical and surgical procedures, including dental procedures, are included.
The governor?s previous executive order, E.O. 20-52, is referenced in the last sentence of the order suspending elective procedures. It is the official declaration of a public health emergency, which was filed on March 9 and expires 60 days from then: May 8.
