We want to thank all of our patients for following the restrictions over the past few months and being able to help us all to achieve level 1. It's important that we continue to support local and support each other.
As we head into level one, we wanted to give you an update on what this looks like for our practice. We are back to standard operation, with our standard opening hours. We are also completing all routine eye examinations and returning to regular contact with our patients. We will continue to follow strict hygiene routines, and continue to sanitise equipment, and all surfaces. We are also requesting if you are sick that you reschedule your appointment to reduce any risk for our optometrists and staff.
If you have any questions, or would like to book an appointment, you can book online, email or call us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
The Golden Rules for everyone at Alert Level 1 (https://uniteforrecovery.govt.nz/covid-19/covid-19-alert-system/alert-level-1/)
If you’re sick, stay home. Don’t go to work or school. Don’t socialise.
If you have cold or flu symptoms call your doctor or Healthline and make sure you get tested.
Wash your hands. Wash your hands. Wash your hands.
Sneeze and cough into your elbow, and regularly disinfect shared surfaces.
If you are told by health authorities to self-isolate you must do so immediately.
If you’re concerned about your wellbeing or have underlying health conditions, work with your GP to understand how best to stay healthy.
Keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen to help contact tracing if needed. Use the NZ COVID Tracer app as a handy way of doing this.
Businesses should help people keep track of their movements by displaying the Ministry of Health QR Code for contact tracing.
Stay vigilant. There is still a global pandemic going on. People and businesses should be prepared to act fast to step up Alert Levels if we have to.
People will have had different experiences over the last couple of months. Whatever you’re feeling — it’s okay. Be kind to others. Be kind to yourself.
