COVID-19 Response from Mountain Eye Care, PC
As healthcare providers, our priority is the health and safety of our patients as well as our staff. We would like to see everyone work together and take sensible precautions to keep our loved ones as safe and healthy as possible. As a result, we are asking patients to consider the following guidelines that we have put in place to help us protect each other during this time of concern.
- COVID-19 symptoms are like the common cold or the flu and may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to the virus. If you have any of the following symptoms, we respectfully ask that you reschedule your routine appointments to a later date.
- Runny Nose & Sneezing
- Cough & Sore Throat
- Difficulty Breathing
- Muscle Pain & Weakness
- Chills & Fatigue
- If you are over the age of 60 or have a compromised auto-immune system, you fall into a higher risk category and as a result, you may want to consider rescheduling any non-emergent appointments at this time.
- The doctors and staff will enact a minimal contact policy with patients. We would like to ask you to understand if they do not shake hands with you during this time.
- Please be aware distribution centers and laboratories may be impacted by COVID-19 which could result in order delays for glasses or contacts. This problem will likely increase over time if significant health concerns remain in effect.
Please keep in mind that for majority of people, COVID-19 will likely come and go without any serious issues. However, as a community our primary goal is to focus on keeping those who are most at risk safe and healthy. With this in mind, please keep your parents, children, friends and coworkers at the top of your priority list as long as this virus is a serious concern.
