WE WANT TO KEEP YOU SAFE...

With the arrival of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have been closely following the guidelines from the CDC to continue safely caring for our patients. The health and safety of our patients, our staff, and our community is always our top priority.

• At this time, we will be enforcing a mask use policy for customers and staff. Please be prepared when arriving.

• We are requesting patients come alone or with a caregiver if under 18 or need assistance for appointments or pick-ups.

• Social distancing is requested and encouraged.

• If you have been exposed to Covid-19 or are showing signs of fever or other symptoms, we ask that you postpone any appointments or pick-ups.

Along with proper social distancing, we also follow rigorous cleaning procedures for our equipment and our staff practices proper hygiene and hand washing. We remain committed to our patients, our staff, and the community. We appreciate your patience as we work through these unprecedented times. Please call us with any questions or concerns.

We are doing what we can to look after your health and your vision, and as always, we appreciate you being our patient.

Best wishes for good health,

Dr. Dana Kinberg and Staff

Steps to take to minimize risk
• Wash hand with soap & water for at least 20 seconds
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people that are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw away the tissue in trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Ensure employees have ample facilities to wash their hands.

PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY
Covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze with your elbow or a tissue will greatly reduce the number of germs that are able to spread to people and objects around you.

Even if your illness doesn’t seem very bad to you, it could be much more serious for someone who catches your germs.

SOCIAL DISTANCING
What Is Social Distancing? Social distancing is a way to keep people from interacting closely or frequently enough to spread an infectious disease. Here in the office we're asking you to not sit next to each other to observe Social Distancing. Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations, please be respectful of others boundaries.
