Is Inhalation Sedation Safe to use during the Covid 19 Pandemic

For my dental colleagues utilising or considering Inhalation Sedation: 
Up early this morning with 90 minutes of research for your benefit. 
This short opinion piece suggest it is indeed safe.

This would appear to contradict the statement put out on the SAAD website. 
I'm happy to be corrected if anyone sees otherwise.

The authors state: "In the absence of clear evidence with regard to the potential of IHS to generate an aerosol, a decision should be made locally as to its safe use. We have adopted a precautionary approach and provide IHS using level 3 PPE as for an AGP. Further research is urgently needed however."
