In ongoing support of regional and state health authorities, we are continuing with these initiatives to help slow the spread of COVID-19:
We are closely following the guidelines for COVID-19 provided by the Centers for Disease Control and the Washington Department of Health. Keys to our success are based on education, cleaning, screening, and respiratory etiquette.
Educational updates provided to staff.
Frequently cleaning common areas and disinfecting all shared surfaces before and after use.
Screening patients prior to appointments, in addition to staff making every effort to contact patients personally prior to any appointment.
Screening patients and employees as they enter our clinics and surgery center to confirm they are healthy and can safely proceed with their visit or surgery.
Rescheduling or sending home any staff, patients, or visitors if they are experiencing fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or have been in close contact with an individual with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
Encouraging all staff and visitors to wash their hands and providing hand sanitizer.
Enforcing social distancing whenever possible and limiting talking during eye exams.
In summary, please follow these recommendations to protect yourself and others:
Stay at home if you’re sick.
If you feel sick and have any of these symptoms, fever, cough, trouble breathing, please contact our office at (509)758-8811 to cancel your appointment.
If you have been in contact with anyone diagnosed with, or potentially exposed to COVID – 19, please contact our office at (509)758-8811 to cancel your appointment.
Wash your hands often and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
