We all became experts in proper handwashing and cleaning techniques, wearing masks and seeking medical care when you are sick. As we move past COVID-19, DDS will continue to share educational bulletins with stakeholders about other wellness and safety topics that may impact our community.

DDS' Wellness & Safety Bulletins will cover topics like how to identify and prevent certain illnesses, preparing for an emergency and other important prevention issues. These bulletins will be posted to the DDS website in the Wellness Toolkit, shared on DDS' social media, and sent to you via email.
