COVID-19 Update from Dr. O’Daniel
April 26, 2020
--All Patients must wear a mask to enter our Office--
We continue to adjust our protocols in order to protect our patients and staff from the community spread of COVID-19. In accordance with the Maricopa County Department of Public Health, we are implementing the following actions below:
** Anyone entering our office (regardless of symptoms) is expected to wear a mask or face covering. Bandanas or handmade masks are acceptable. All staff members working with patients will consistently wear facial masks as well. This will help to protect against asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic transmission of the virus.
**Upon entering our office, we ask that each patient stop after entering the front door and a staff member will check your temperature with a non-contact thermometer. Anyone with a fever will need to reschedule after seeing their family physician.
**We continue to actively screen our patients asking that no one enter our facility if they have had exposure to someone diagnosed with COVID-19 or have any new onset cough or fever.
--We appreciate everyone’s cooperation & flexibility as we do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing in the office has worked well. We stay committed to following the guidance of the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control as well as the public health officials who are closely tracking data specific to Arizona. Our office is compliant with the CDC protocols to ensure that our office, exam rooms, and our dispensary are disinfected after each patient encounter.
Please Note: Our office will begin scheduling patients in May once we obtain permission from the CDC and the Arizona State Board of Optometry. We will be limiting the number of patients allowed in our office at one time. Therefore, please bear with us as we try to accommodate your needs.
Your safety and health is our utmost concern as our office reopens to provide you with ocular examinations, glasses and contact lenses.
Please call the office with any questions. Tatum Eye Care 480-889-6044
