What does this event cover
This training update will focus on the new guideline sent out by PHE, please see below: Updated guidance on EY settings, toothbrushing specifically mentioned (check section 3.6): https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-early-years-and-childcare-closures/coronavirus-covid-19-early-years-and-childcare-closures
3.6 Supervised toothbrushing programmes PHE have confirmed that supervised toothbrushing programmes may be re-established within settings using the dry brushing method.
The wet brushing model is not recommended because it is considered more likely to risk droplet and contact transmission and offers no additional benefit to oral health over dry toothbrushing.
For information on the cleaning and storage of toothbrushes and storage systems, see the COVID-19: guidance for supervised toothbrushing programmes in early years and school settings.
