COVID-19 Updates

 Masking and PPE (updated June 8th)

As of June 11th, patients will no longer be required to wear a mask while in our clinic unless experiencing symptoms such as a cough, fever, congestion, runny nose and/or sore throat. We ask that patients continue to do the self-screener posted in the office and notify staff so appropriate PPE and infection control protocols are implemented. New Vision Providers and Staff will continue to wear masks and strongly encourage all patients to do so as well.
