Coronavirus

We are actively planning and making adjustments at Eye Care Associates to prepare for and try to prevent spread of germs for our staff & patients!  We appreciate anyone who isn’t feeling well to call and reschedule their appointment; we’ll be glad to find a time that best accommodates your schedule.

We are working to develop plans of action should any of our patients be confirmed with COVID-19. For now, there are several precautionary measures you can take to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

1. Stop the spread of rumors and hearsay. There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding COVID-19 – especially on social media. There are several legitimate sources of information that you can turn to for facts and information on COVID-19:
• Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
• CDC downloadable fact sheet on COVID-10: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019ncov/downloads/2019-ncovfactsheet.pdf
• CDC Fact Sheet – What To Do: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/sick-with-2019-nCoV-factsheet.pdf 1

2. If you exhibiting symptoms of acute respiratory illness – Go home and self-quarantine much like you would for the flu or a cold – to prevent exposure.
• Symptoms of acute respiratory illness include: fever; shortness of breath; severe congestion; cough; sore throat.
• You can find potential symptoms of COVID-19 on the following CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.html
• If symptoms persist, and you do not feel like you are improving – contact your primary health care provider.

3. Use contagious illness best practices, much like you would for any other illness like the flu or a cold.
• Cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough.
• Wash your hands with soap and water regularly for at least 20 seconds.
• If hand washing is not an option, use an alcohol based hand sanitizer (at least 60% alcohol) often.
• Try to avoid touching your face with your hands (especially your eyes, nose or mouth) with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched areas at home and in your place of work.
