Thank you for your continued trust in our practice. As with the transmission of any communicable disease like a cold or flu, you may be exposed to COVID-19, also know as the “Coronavirus,” at any time or in any place. Be assured that we have always followed state and federal regulations as recommended as well as universal personal protection and disinfection protocols to limit transmission of all diseases in our office and continue to do so.
Despite our careful attention to sterilization, disinfection, and the use of our personal barriers, there is still a chance that you could be exposed to an illness in our office, just as you might be at your gym, grocery store or favorite restaurant. “Social Distancing” nationwide has reduced the transmission of the Coronavirus. Although we have taken measures to provide social distancing in our practice due to the nature of the procedures we provide, it is not possible to maintain social distancing between the patient, optometrist, optometrist staff, and sometimes other patients at all times.
If you have been exposed to a communicable disease, you may spread the disease to the optometrist, optometrist staff, and other patients/parents in the practice. Therefore, prior to each appointment, we will be asking the following questions to reduce chances of transmission:
I understand that if my answer to any of these questions is yes, I may be asked to reschedule today's optometrist appointment to a later date.
