Dear valued St. Paul Eye Clinic patients,
We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve you and your family and are excited to begin the process of reopening clinic services.
While at the clinic, we ask that you please continue to practice social distancing. To that end, we have placed markers on the floor to assist you, as well as plexiglass shields in certain areas of the clinic.
Following the CDC recommendations, everyone visiting the clinic will be required to wear a face mask. If you do not have one with you, please notify our staff and we will provide one for you, but it is much preferred that you provide your own mask. Surgical or homemade masks, or bandanas or scarves that cover the nose and mouth are all acceptable. Our staff will also be wearing face masks to help prevent infection.
We ask that you do not wear N95 masks with an exterior valve to your appointment. Because of the valve, these masks create a doorway for pathogens to escape when you exhale, therefore, it does not protect people around you.
For more information on acceptable face coverings and how to make your own mask please visit the link below.
For your safety, the safety of other patients and our staff we need to limit the number of visitors / support you bring to the clinic to one person per patient Further, unless the patient is a child, we are recommending that you not bring children to your visit if possible.
Additionally, if you or your support person have a fever, cough, chills, shortness of breath, feel ill, or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the past 21 days, please call 651-738-6500 to reschedule your appointment.
Once you arrive, please enter the building and proceed to the COVID screening table to be screened before your appointment.
We understand that some of our patients are more comfortable staying home during this time. For that reason, St. Paul Eye Clinic is offering telehealth for patients with certain conditions. For more information, please visit the link below.
We appreciate your loyalty and willingness to work with us to ensure the safety of everyone involved. We look forward to seeing you soon!
