Covid-19 Protocols

 

 

 

 

 

 

In recognition of public need, the Ministry of Health has changed guidelines for optometrists to open in a cautious and discretionary way and providing the following criteria are met: 

  • Please delay contact if you have any of the following symptoms – fever (38deg+), new or worsening cough, sore throat, sneezing or runny nose, loss of smell or altered taste.  

  • Also delay contact if you have had contact with a covid-19 case or have attended a current location of interest. ​

  • As a healthcare provider, all patients will be seen regardless of vaccination status. However we will need to know your vaccination status in order to use appropriate safety measures while in premises.

Preventative measures we take to ensure you have a safe visit:

1. Disinfecting the examination room between patients; disinfecting frames with certified UVC lamp (kills all pathogens!)

 

2. The examination room has an extractor fan and a HEPA grade purifier

 

3. Social distancing as much as possible. We will arrange appointments to minimise the number of people in the practice. To this end, please arrive unaccompanied if possible unless you need a support person. Also please arrive at the designated appointment time  to avoid congestion in the waiting area. There will be a limit of 2 people in the retail area. 

4. Under Orange traffic regulations, please arrive at the practice unaccompanied with a mask on. The door will be shut and staff will open it when you arrive in order to maintain social distancing in the premises. 

These highly regulated procedures are to observe government regulations under Orange traffic regulations and to keep staff and clientele safe.
