As all of us are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic is having an immediate and devastating impact on the practice of our profession. We understand that it is a challenging time for many of your practices. In response, the COA board has voted to waive all membership dues and assessments for two months, effective immediately.
If you are not a current member, I encourage you to join today to take advantage of all the resources AOA, COA and your local society are offering during this time, including free legal advice and emergen-CE. New member dues will be waived until June 1, 2020.
It's been a rough week to put it mildly. With the stay at home order issued by our governor, we have our directive set before us. Reschedule routine eye exams and be available for urgent, non-routine care. 
By no means is this meant to be an exhaustive list. It's just an idea of what "urgent, non-routine care" could entail. I put this out because I've had a lot of questions from around the state.

It's going to be a rough ride ahead, but remember we're all in this together. If you need anything at all, reach out to us at COA. Don't hesitate. This too shall pass.

Sincerely,

Jason Tu, OD
President
