Five Points Eye Care Statement Regarding COVID-19
Five Points Eye Care is following the recommendation from the CDC to postpone non-urgent eye care. We are open for urgent and emergency eye care only. We have also temporarily reduced our staff and our available appointments to limit the number of people in our building at one time.
At Five Points Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.
Five Points Eye Care has always been concerned with the spread of communicable diseases. We continue to practice strict universal infection control protocols in our office for your safety. Your health and well-being, as well as that of our team, are our primary concern.
We will continue to operate under normal business hours.
Based on guidelines set by the CDC and the DPH, the following protocols are implemented in our office, effective immediately.
- Patients who have a fever, believe they are showing signs of infection, or who live with someone with symptoms, will be asked to reschedule their appointments.
- Please wash your hands before your appointment.
- Please do not bring sick family members to appointments.
- We will refrain from handshakes.
Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.
As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.
As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and is due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.
The Five Points Eye Care Team
