At Newport Optical and Green Mountain Eye Care your eye health and overall well-being is our first priority. We have closely monitored the spread of the novel coronavirus/COVID-19. As you are no doubt aware, there have been recently discovered cases of COVID-19 with indications of community spread here in Vermont. State and local officials have taken steps this week to reduce transmission and protect vulnerable populations.
The Center for Disease Control has also recommended that patients postpone routine eye exams. For the safety of our patients and staff, we have decided to temporarily close our practice, effective Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 5:00 PM. We plan to re-open at 8:00 AM on Monday, April 6. We will be contacting all patients who have scheduled appointments during this period so we can reschedule them as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we navigate this challenging time.
If you are in urgent need of care, we will have an on-call doctor who can be reached by leaving us a message. You can also reach us by text or email. These will be monitored several times per day. If you feel that you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call your local emergency room or contact your primary care physician.
We believe it is critically important for all members of our community to help “flatten the curve” and reduce the spread of this dangerous virus. For up-to-date information on COVID-19, please refer to the Vermont Department of Health or the CDC.
Stay safe and healthy!
