(2) All patients and visitors, as well as all physicians and staff, are required to wear masks in our facilities, in accordance with state and federal health recommendations.

(3) We encourage family members and friends of patients to wait in their vehicles in our parking lots to reduce congestion within our offices. Pediatric patients should be accompanied by only one parent, whenever possible.

(4) We will continue to ask that all patients who have COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion reschedule their appointment. Patients with symptoms are required to reschedule their appointments and should contact their primary care provider.

(5) Our physicians and staff are mandated to monitor themselves for COVID19 symptoms on a daily basis. Any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 are reported to Wheaton Eye Clinic leadership as well as the affected individual’s primary care physician.
