Great River Eye Clinic is dedicated to patient healthcare, and the safety of our patients, and associates.

We are giving our team members facts about COVID-19 and reminding them to follow simple, but effective steps to keep them safe such as frequent handwashing.

Our associates are working diligently to take precautions and steps to ensure a clean and safe environment.

We are disinfecting our facilities and equipment as appropriate.

We have implemented wipe down sanitize procedures, sanitizing bathrooms, chairs, optical frames, and any surfaces that have patient, or associate direct contact. Informational posters are posted in break rooms and patient areas to keep everyone informed, and to keep safety top of mind.

We are encouraging our associates to take any signs of illness seriously and seek medical attention as needed.

We will provide masks, available for patients at the front desk that are sick. If you have a cough, or are feeling sick, please call our clinic to reschedule your appointment. If you show up at the clinic and are sick, we will ask you to reschedule your appointment to be seen in two to three weeks.

Thank You for your patience during this global challenge. For additional information on the connection with the Coronavirus and the eyes please see the following link to the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s website https://www.aao.org/…/coronavirus-covid19-eye-infection-pin…
