As our community copes with the fast-moving spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus we hope you and your family are in good health during these stressful times.

Due to Covid-19, and CDC guidelines for healthcare facilities, we will be closed until 5/1/2020 to protect the health of our patients and our staff. That date, however, is subject to change in accordance with the CDC guidelines.

Should you need emergency care please call our office and our doctor will be able to work with you remotely.

Should you need contact lenses please call the office to place an order which we will ship directly to you at no additional charge.

We are here to help and assist our patients in anyway we can.

When the CDC restrictions are lifted, rest assured, our staff will notify all patients as we restart business operations. We thank you for your patience, and hope to see you when we re-open, please stay safe and healthy.

Please contact us at 703-481-5600 if you have any questions and we will respond back as quickly as we can.

Best wishes for good health,
The Eyecare Center Team

Symptoms
• Mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough, and difficulty breathing
• Symptoms may appear in as few as two days or as long as 14 days


Transmission
• Spreads person to person through small droplets from nose or mouth which are spread when a person with COVID-19 coughs or exhales.
• Can catch the virus by touching objects and surfaces that droplets have landed on and then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.


Steps to take to minimize risk
• Wash hand with soap & water for at least 20 seconds
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people that are sick.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw away the tissue in trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Ensure employees have ample facilities to wash their hands.
   
PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY
Covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze with your elbow or a tissue will greatly reduce the number of germs that are able to spread to people and objects around you.

Even if your illness doesn't seem very bad to you, it could be much more serious for someone who catches your germs.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

What Is Social Distancing? Social distancing is a way to keep people from interacting closely or frequently enough to spread an infectious disease. Here in the office we're asking you to not sit next to each other to observe Social Distancing. Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations, please be respectful of others boundaries.
