The Texas Medical Association has produced an extremely helpful chart of risks ranked from 1 to 10 in order of low to high risk. I feel that we will get out of this crisis and recover our economy through collaboration and commonsense. As we re-open this list will help everyone decide which activities put

them more at risk and what level of caution they should take

to engage in those activities.

Low risk (1 to 3): Opening mail, riding a bake, going for a

walk in a quiet neighborhood, grocery shopping, getting

restaurant take out, pumping gas, visiting a library or


Medium risk (4 to 6): Dinner at someone else's house,

walking in a busy downtown, swimming at a public pool,

staying in a hotel for two nights, going to the beach.

High Risk (7 to 9): Going to a bar or a church service with

more than 500 worshippers; visiting an amusement park or zoo,

traveling by plane, playing basketball or football, eating at a buffet, working out at a gym.

Sitting in a waiting room is listed a risk factor of 4, I feel at our office this minimized because we require everyone to wear a mask (until we begin treatment, of course).

You can see the chart for yourself at l .aspx?id=53977

If you have questions about this list or about your next

dental appointment give us a call.

Be Safe, wash your hands, and watch out for each other.
