We continue to strive to ensure our patients and employees’ safety and to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19. As such, we closely follow guidelines put forth by local and state authorities. Pennsylvania’s commonwealth released an order on July 2, 2020 that individuals who travel to an area where there are high amounts of COVID-19 cases should self quarantine at home for 14 days upon return. Our practice has updated our guidelines to align with the state directive.
Effective immediately: If you or a person residing in your home will be traveling to or have already traveled to Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee we kindly ask you to call the office and reschedule your appointment to occur after you have quarantined at home for 14 days upon arrival home. As a reminder, international travel and travel to the Caribbean (excluding Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands) also requires a 14 day quarantine period upon return home prior to your appointment.
We understand how stressful this time is, and we are very sorry for the interruption of your travel plans. We will continue to monitor the ever-changing guidelines and greatly appreciate your understanding and flexibility. We remain committed to providing quality eyecare while ensuring everyone’s health and safety!
