At Bright Eyes, we take the health of our staff and patients very seriously. It is for this reason that we have been very cautious during the COVID-19 pandemic. In spring of 2020 we closed for several weeks for all but urgent care. Since reopening, we have taken significant precautions to limit spread of the COVID-19 virus. Additionally, we have been diligent in establishing quarantine of any staff member or patient that may be at risk.
We are now pleased to announce that both Dr. Nate and Dr. Beth have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Our office manager, Cristina, has received her first dose and will receive the second shortly. We will encourage staff to get the vaccine as soon as it is available to them.
Since no vaccine is 100% effective at preventing the possibility of contracting or spreading COVID-19, we will continue all precautions as recommended by the CDC and other relevant agencies. This includes the wearing of facemasks and social distancing. But we are happy that more people are becoming vaccinated and we encourage you to talk with your doctor, educate yourself, and if appropriate get the vaccination when it becomes available to you.
Wishing you the best in 2021!
