Protecting Patients from Coronavirus
We are committed to following the CDC guidelines for the safety of our patients and staff. The CDC is monitoring infectivity rates and hospital saturation levels for our county. With this data, they are releasing real time information on relative risk and specific recommendations for our area. At Northwood Vision, we are following these guidelines.
Risk is considered High, Medium, or Low. We will have a sign posted on the door with the current risk level, and ask you to respond accordingly.
When High, masks should be worn in the office and all indoor spaces. Our staff will be wearing masks in the office.
When Medium, masks should be worn by all high risk patients in indoor spaces. Our staff will be wearing masks around patients.
When Low, the need for masks is minimal, and optional at this time, and masking for our staff will be optional. If you want an unmasked staff member to wear a mask, please let us know and we will kindly oblige. We want all our patients to feel safe at our office.
Regardless of risk, we remind you to wash your hands frequently, cough into the crook of your arm, and reschedule if you are not feeling well or have been recently exposed to sick individual. Together, we can keep those loved ones around us who are most vulnerable to severe illness as safe as possible.
