Bay Eye Care Center is committed to keeping our patients and the public safe during this Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency. Based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Ophthalmology we have created an environment in our facilities that is safe and secure for our patients and team members.
We will be screening you upon your arrival to determine if you have any risk factors that might put others at risk including fever, cough or shortness of breath. If you have these symptoms, please reschedule your appointment and call your primary care physician or seek other medical attention. If you have no symptoms but have recent history of travel or contact with someone who has either had a fever or cough, or tested positive for the Coronavirus, we need you to reschedule or postpone your appointment for at least 14 days. If you are awaiting COVID test results we ask that you postpone your appointment until you have obtained your results.
All patients are required to have a scheduled appointment prior to coming into the office including our optical departments. Depending on the volume of patients in the office at any one time, we may ask you to wait outside or in your car until we are ready to call you back.
Access to the office will be limited to patients only unless the patient requires special assistance (i.e. wheelchair, walker) or companion has legal authority pertaining to patient care. Legal guardians will be allowed to accompany all minors.
