For purposes of preparing for, responding to, and mitigating any effect of COVID-19, State Surgeon General Scott A. Rivkees issued Emergency Order 20-015 suspending the provisions of sections 466.006 and 466.007, Florida Statutes, that would prohibit the use of mannequins or simulated patients in lieu of live patients during the administration of the American Dental Licensing Examination and Dental Hygiene Examination.
