MASK POLICY UPDATE JUNE 1, 2021

CDC has announced that the fully vaccinated no longer need to wear a mask, except where required by local law and/or mandates. 

As of July 27,2021, at Melton Eye Care Clinic locations, we will still maintain a 'mask wear' policy for our optometric physician(s) and clinical associates for many reasons and ask that our clinical teams continue N-95/surgical masks and clinical precautions as usual and customary aspects of our patient care/contact protocols.

Our great hope, is that with current vaccine and medication protocols, Covid-19 will be just another nuisance eventually and not a deadly threat to our elderly population.
