Dear GOA members,
As mentioned yesterday, we are bringing you an update on the CDC stance on routine care.
Please read the following notice from the AOA regarding the new recommendations the CDC has made for optometrists:
On an ongoing basis, including by remaining in close contact with their state association, doctors should stay informed as their state's governor and other state and local authorities update the status of public health and safety measures in effect, specifically as they relate to the operations of optometry practices and the delivery of care by doctors of optometry and other physicians and health care providers.
Providing you with the education, information and resources you need to serve your patients remains our number one priority. The GOA is committed to providing you with vital information during this time of uncertainty.
Thank you for all that you are doing for your patients, for your community, and for our profession during this public health emergency. If you have any questions or concerns, please let do not hesitate to contact me directly.
