COVID-19 Policies

We are Taking Extra Precautions to Avoid the Spread of Coronavirus

AS OF  3/17/2020 HELMUS OPTOMETRY IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

We are in the midst of an unparalleled time in our country’s history, and across the world. As our nation is responding to a healthcare situation that affects everyone, we are all doing our best to plan for the unexpected, as we each know that the current situation  is fluid and everchanging. 

Helmus Optometry has always followed strict cleanliness and sanitation practices. The health and safety of our patients and employees are our number one priority amid concerns about the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We are here to serve you, and we want to share information about how we continue to operate safely and effectively. Our thoughts are with those affected by the coronavirus.


In accordance with CDC and OSHA guidelines, we have:

  • Limited the number of patients scheduled each day to allow for social distancing.
  • Enacted more frequent cleaning and sanitizing practices throughout the office, with special attention to all exam equipment, door handles, reception area surfaces, furniture, credit card terminals, restrooms, keyboards, and more.
  • Made hand sanitizer is available throughout the office
  • Removed all shared magazines and literature
  • Removed all non-essential items at the check-out desks such as pen, beverages and business cards

 

Important Policies:

  • If you are sick, please stay home. We will reschedule your appointment if you are ill.
  • We are a hand-shake and elbow-bump free zone.
  • 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.
  • If you have had contact with someone who is ill or are caring for someone at risk, please defer your appointment.
  • Bring your own pen for signing in.
  • Our policy has always been to keep sick staff home.

 

CDC recommendations include:

  • Wash your hands frequently, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or using an alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your face – eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and throw away the tissue.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home if you are sick or have flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath).
  • For more information, visit www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.

 

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 CDC recommendations and guidance. We are communicating regularly with our employees to keep them informed and to ensure their safety and that of our patients.

 

In this uncertain moment, we have confidence in our community’s ability to pull together with kindness, care and concern for the common good.

  • For over twenty years I have seen Dr. Joann Helmus annually as my optometrist. The very high standard of service and technical knowledge of both doctor and staff has never wavered. Consistently modernizing their examination equipment in providing the most up-to-date exams and accurate prescriptions. Their selection of eyeglass frames is most complete range of style choices. The staff are very knowledgeable of insurance allowances, and discussed with me the many options available. Have many times and will continue recommending this outstanding optometric office to family and friends.
