Florida Lions Eye Clinic Reopens June 2nd

We are excited to announce that our clinic is reopening for patients on June 2, 2020!

The past few months have changed for all of us in ways we could have never imagined. From how we care for loved ones, how we work and how we interact in public spaces. Here, at the Florida Lions Eye Clinic, we take this new reality seriously. Nothing is as important as the health and safety of our employees, volunteers, and patients. We have been working hard to develop a plan and to create enhanced safety protocols to prepare for a safe reopening.

With guidance from the CDC, here are just a few of the changes we have implemented at the clinic:

·        COVID-19 screening Questionnaire for patients

·        Limited number of people in the building at any given time

·        Mandatory non-invasive temperature checks

·        Mandatory masks and gloves for staff and patients (provided by us)

·        Clinic surfaces will be cleaned after each patient visit

By following these guidelines, we can safely return to caring for our patients and providing the services that are so greatly needed in our community.

As the new Executive Director, I look forward to meeting each one of you after the social distancing restrictions are relaxed. Until then, please don’t hesitate to call me at the clinic or email me at nadinen@fllec.com.
