As you are likely aware, the World Health Organization has declared a pandemic related to the novel coronavirus originating in China. The safety and well-being of our patients is of the utmost importance. For this reason, we would like to share some information about the virus and update you on our current office policy during the pandemic.
We are still learning about the coronavirus that causes the COVID-19 illness. For the most up-to-date information regarding the virus and related recommendations, please visit the Center for Disease Control’s website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov. The most common symptoms related to infection with this virus include fever, cough, muscle aches, fatigue, and shortness of breath. Symptoms typically start around 4 days after infection, but you may be infected (and spreading the virus) without symptoms up to 14 days after infection. People at increased risk for severe illness include those over age 60, with the severity of illness tending to rise with increasing age. People with other medical conditions are also more likely to have serious symptoms when infected with the virus. These medical conditions may include cardiovascular (heart and vessel) disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory (lung) disease, high blood pressure, and cancer.
Because you can be infected with the virus and spread it to others before you even develop symptoms, we would greatly appreciate your cooperation with the policy outlined below. We have a high percentage of patients who are elderly and/ or have multiple medical conditions. Keeping our patients healthy and providing excellent eye care is our priority.
We ask that you reschedule any routine or non-urgent visits if:
1) you have had any fever or new cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, or diarrhea within the last 14 days, or
2) you have been in contact with anyone with the above symptoms in the last 14 days.
We will be screening patients upon arrival to our office. If you meet any of the above criteria and do not have an urgent eye condition, we will ask you to reschedule your appointment.
If you do meet the above criteria and have an urgent eye condition, be assured the health of your eyes is of the utmost importance to us. We will work with you to determine the most appropriate course of action for your situation.
If you are a patient who is considered high-risk as noted above, you may wish to reschedule your appointment to avoid community exposure that may increase the likelihood of infection. If you would like to reschedule your appointment, please contact us at (304) 982-8246, extension 2 and leave a message. We will contact you for rescheduling.
Again, thank you for your cooperation in helping us keep patients and staff as safe as possible. We are wishing you good health!
