Dear Patients -
Our practice teams are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the immediate health risk is currently considered low for most of the American public; however, we are taking extra precautionary measures to ensure the well-being of our patients and staff. Fortunately, the standard sterilization and disinfection protocols we use, recommended by the American Optometric Association, are designed to be effective at preventing coronavirus, flu and other communicable diseases.
For the safety of yourself and others, we are asking all patients who are experiencing symptoms of the flu, a respiratory infection or have been exposed to a person with coronavirus or any other communicable disease, to reschedule their appointments. We will be posting information in our practices and following CDC recommendations for pre-screening our patients. If you are experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus, please seek guidance from your primary physician.
The CDC offers several tips for preventing the spread of viruses, such as properly washing your hands, disinfecting surfaces and staying home when sick. Please review the CDC's recommendations to learn how you can keep yourself and your family healthy.
We will provide additional updates if the coronavirus situation progresses. The health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.
