COVID-19 OFFICE PROTOCOLS - PLEASE READ!
Updated November 12, 2020
We are still open.
Now that the Province of Manitoba is in Pandemic Response Level Critical (Red) we wanted to update you about our office.
Level Critical (Red) DOES NOT affect our offices and opticals. As regulated healthcare professionals, optometrists do not have to restrict their services. We remain open on an appointment-only basis for eye exams, problems and emergencies. Our opticals will continue to offer full service on an appointment-only basis, too.
Please read below for office and exam protocols which have been in place since May 2020 to keep everyone safe and help prevent the spread of Covid-19. The safety of everyone - you and your family, the doctors, opticians, staff and the greater community are paramount.
All patients and visitors are required to wear a face mask upon entry and for the entire duration of their appointment. Our doctors and staff will also be wearing face masks, as per strict personal protection equipment protocols.
Upon entering our office or opticals you need to immediately sanitize your hands with hand-sanitizer.
We are practicing physical distancing, sanitizing more frequently and limiting the number of people that can be in our offices for eye exams and in our dispensaries.
You need an appointment for any visit to our eye clinic or dispensary. Please call one of our offices or opticals for an appointment, as you can't "drop in" anymore.
We ask that you come to appointments alone, unless you are unable to (say if you are a parent/guardian with young children or a caregiver). Friends or family with patients may be asked to wait outside the clinic.
If our waiting room or optical is full, you may be asked to wait outside or in your vehicle until there is room for you.
Please call our office to reschedule your appointment if you answer yes to any of the following:
- experiencing any signs or symptoms of illness, even mild ones, such as cough, headache, fever/ chills, muscle aches, sneezing, sore throat/ hoarse voice, shortness of breath/ breathing difficulties, loss of taste or smell, vomiting or diarrhea for more than 24 hours, poor feeding of an infant, runny nose, fatigue, nausea or loss of appetite or skin rash of unknown cause.
- contact with anyone diagnosed or suspected of having COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
- you have travelled outside Manitoba in the last 14 days or had any contact with someone who has travelled outside Manitoba in the last 14 days.
Anyone who answers yes to any of the above should contact Health Links-Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257 (toll-free).
Thank you to everyone for your patience, kind words and support during these unprecedented times we live in!
Drs. Brian Book, Kara Rosenblat, Sonia Singh-Enns, Mark Gillman and Ehren Sherbo, and our awesome Opticians and Staff
