We are happy to announce that beginning May 11th, we will resume patient care! Out of an abundance of caution, and guidance from various health agencies including the CMS, CDC, and CDPH, we will be following various safety protocols to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff. The following protocols apply whether you are coming in for an eye exam, coming to pick out new glasses, or picking up glasses or contacts. Prior to entry there are 3 important steps:
1. Bring your own mask: You must bring your own mask or face covering! It is required to be worn at all times within the office (we are unable to provide masks from the office; if you do not bring a mask, we will have to reschedule your visit for a later date).
2. Body temperature reading: Staff will be administering thermometer readings, and must be within normal range for entry into the office.
3. Attest to good health: You must attest to good health, with no symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, sore throat, loss of taste/smell, and have not had contact with another person with COVID19 in the past 14 days.
In addition, we will include limiting the number of patients in the office. Therefore, you may be asked to call the office upon arrival, and may need to wait outside or in your car until you are called into the office. Only patients will be allowed in the office (please have spouses, relatives, and friends wait outside of the office). Exceptions include minors and dependents...may be accompanied by one adult parent or caretaker.
