Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
i2mDental is closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and working in close partnership with state and local public health authorities. We may soon be launching pointers to additional information and resources to help you get the care you need and to protect yourself, your family and your community.
We want to limit the number of people in the clinic to 10 people. Ideally we would want only the patient on the premise. If the patient is a minor then we recommend only adult to accompany the patient.
If more patients arrive then we recommend people to wait in the parking lot until we give them a call to come inside for their appointment.
We will ask for your permission to read your body temperature using a touchless thermometer. If the thermometer read a temperature that is considered above normal, then we would request you to contact your Primary Care Physician.

Letter from Mayor of Hyattsville (03/18/2020)
The order allows for restaurants to continue carry-out, drive-thru, and delivery services, and allows for eateries in health care facilities to remain open.
Thanks to each of you who were able to participate in our call yesterday afternoon. This email provides a summary of yesterday’s call and requests two things of you: to complete a short, 9-question survey and register for next week’s call.
As of yesterday, Prince George’s County had 11 cases of COVID-19 and 2 of those cases are under investigation. Also yesterday, Governor Hogan announced that all bars, restaurants, movie theaters and gyms were to close as of 5pm. Restaurants are permitted to provide service through takeout and delivery only. Gatherings of 50 people or more continue to be banned. You can read more on Governor Hogan’s mandates here.
The City’s operations are ongoing with restricted access to municipal buildings. All meetings and events are canceled at this time through April 4, 2020 and will be reassessed as needed. Notary, fingerprinting, licensing, and permitting functions are suspended through April 4, 2020 as well. Call-A-Bus services will continue to be offered for seniors and differently-abled residents for essential visits only (medical and grocery). Police and public works services are ongoing with some modifications: non-emergency police reports for incidents no longer in progress or where no suspect is present will be taken over the phone and dispatchers will screen callers to determine if any individuals at the location are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have traveled internationally.
Jim Chandler, Director of Community and Economic Development and Assistant City Administrator provided updates on programs offered by the State of Maryland at this time. You can access information on those programs by visiting: https://businessexpress.maryland.gov/coronavirus
Comptroller Franchot has extended the business tax filing deadline to June 1st. Additionally, he has submitted a request for $500M from the State to assist small businesses during this time. We will keep track of any movement on that item.
As I mentioned, our goal is to stay in communication with you so that we can plan together to address the various impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our community. Please complete this survey to help us proactively identify resources that you will need as we head into the next week.
In the meantime, please plan to join me again on Monday, March 23, 2020, where we will work to update you as best as we can on any changes since yesterday. Please click here to register. Once you register, you will be registered for all future calls.
