100% of our staff are vaccinated and 96% are boosted. Vaccination with booster is a requirement of employement.
Helmus Optometry has always followed strict cleanliness and sanitation practices. The health and safety of our patients and employees is our number one priority amid concerns about the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We are here to serve you, and we want to share information about how we continue to operate safely.
If you are planning a visit:
Only patients with appointments are allowed inside the office.
Everyone entering the building must wear a SURGICAL mask. We offer free surgical masks at check-in.
In an effort to limit the number of bodies in the office at one time, please leave your family members in the car or outside. Only one essential caregiver is allowed per patient.
All eyewear dispenses, spectacle adjustments and repairs are now by appointment only.
If you are sick, please stay home. We will reschedule your appointment if you are ill.
We are a handshake-free zone.
If you have had contact with someone who is ill or are caring for someone at risk, please reschedule your appointment.
Changes We Have Implemented:
We are monitoring information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and federal, state, and local agencies to help ensure the actions we're taking are in line with the latest recommendations and guidance. We are communicating regularly with our employees to keep them informed and to ensure their safety and that of our patients.
