COVID-19 Update September 2021

As the intensity of the COVID pandemic increases once again, we at Child Eye Care Associates continue to monitor state statistics and implement practices to ensure the safety of both staff and patients in this unprecedented time. 

Given the recent rise in local cases, and following the precedent set by local hospitals, Child Eye Care Associates has decided to reintroduce some of our stricter COVID policies in order to keep our patients and staff as safe as possible. WE ASK THAT YOU PLEASE LISTEN TO ALL REMINDER CALLS FOR UP TO DATE INFORMATION REGARDING POSSIBLE APPOINTMENT RESTRICTIONS.

 

All our staff members are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

We will once again be strictly enforcing one companion per patient per visit; since the delta variant is affecting younger adults and children, we are requiring additional siblings to stay at home. We are no longer making any exceptions to this rule unless it is an emergency appointment and you will be asked to reschedule your appointment. 

If the patient or member of the household has been exposed to COVID-19, please call to reschedule the appointment for at least 14 days later - accommodations will be made to ensure you are seen in a timely manner. 

At the moment, we are not reducing our patient load so that we may continue to provide timely care to our patients. Where possible, we will try and keep you in the exam rooms for your entire visit. When that is not possible, we may ask you to wait in your car while you dilate (a pager can be provided) so that we can keep our waiting room as clear as possible.

 

We continue to wipe down every exam room and all equipment with virucidal spray between each patient.

 

All patients/parents will be asked to initial and sign a document at check in each visit stating they have not had any COVID symptoms or exposure over the last 14 days.

 

We will continue to take temperatures at check-in.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to:

Stacey (office manager) at 503 635 4436 x 107 or stacey.starner@childeyecare.net

Sally (clinical manager) at 503 635 4436 x 106 or sally.murray@childeyecare.net
