Severe acute respiratory coronavirus-2 syndrome (SARS-CoV-2), the novel coronavirus causing the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), spread across the world, resulting in a global crisis. This pandemic has caused consequences that are beyond the boundaries of a single discipline of life, but it is healthcare that is under the most stress. As we received COVID-19 cases in our hospital (a private tertiary care facility in Sialkot, Pakistan), we geared up to accommodate these cases, since the government sector was already overburdened. The purpose of this study is to report the trends observed in 80 COVID-19 patients admitted at our facility from May 16 to July 14, 2020.

STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive review article. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to provide guidelines and recommendations for how to safely resume dental and craniomaxillofacial STSMs. The following considerations will be discussed: the need for extensive collaboration between organizations and local leadership, the importance of COVID-19 testing, use and management of personal protective equipment, team selection and training, social distancing protocols, and criteria for patient and case selection. METHODS: A literature review was completed, identifying resources and current data regarding the safe resumption clinical activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. RESULTS: At this time, there are no protocols developed regarding the safe resumption of STSMs. Primary resources, including the CDC, WHO, and FDA should be closely monitored so that developed protocols from these recommendations reflect the latest information. CONCLUSION: This paper outlines general considerations and recommendations for dentists, oral health specialists, and craniomaxillofacial surgeons seeking to safely resume STSMs. These recommendations are designed to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 by reinforcing social distancing protocols, reviewing criteria for patient and case selections, encouraging collaboration between organizations and local leadership, and team training. These guidelines should be tailored to fit the needs of each individual mission while keeping the safety as the main objective.

International travel goes hand in hand with medical delivery to underserved communities. The global health care worker can be exposed to a wide range of infectious diseases during their global experiences. A pretravel risk assessment visit and all appropriate vaccinations and education must be performed. Universal practices of water safety, food safety, and insect avoidance will prevent most travel-related infections and complications. Region-specific vaccinations will further reduce illness risk. An understanding of common travel-related illness signs and symptoms is helpful. Emerging pathogens that can cause a pandemic should be understood to avoid health care worker infection and spread.
