Dear Patient or Parent/Guardian of Kids Eye Care of Maryland:
We want to express our most heartfelt desire to communicate how seriously we are taking the very recent developments of COVID-19.
The health and well-being of our patients, staff, and providers has always been our highest priority, and we are here to reassure you that our enhanced protocols and preventive measures are providing a sanitary, clean, and safe environment for you and your children so that we can continue to provide expert care. From top to bottom and everywhere in between, we are maintaining sterile surfaces and disinfecting after each patient.
We are closely monitoring the guidance of the Centers for Diseases Control and the World Health Organization and will adjust our protocols according to their recommendations. All of our staff is subject to the same self-quarantine guidelines as we are requesting of you. We are requesting that any patient reschedule their appointment if they:
- Have traveled internationally within the past fourteen (14) days;
- Have been exposed to or encountered anyone who may have contracted COVID-19 (Coronavirus);
- Are feeling sick (coughing, sneezing, sore throat, shortness of breath) or have experienced fever or other flu-like symptoms within the past fourteen (14) days.
We have removed all toys and books from the reception areas for safety measures. All attempts will be made to room patients immediately upon check in whenever possible. All staff and providers have been instructed to wear masks and gloves at all times.
If you have an existing appointment, we look forward to seeing you and want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to promote a safe and secure experience.
Please do not keep appointments if you or any of your family have symptoms of infection or exposure to COVID-19. We thank you for your understanding during this trying time. As everything evolves, please follow our Facebook page to stay up to date: (https://www.facebook.com/kidseyecare/).
Please stay safe and healthy.
