COVID-19 UPDATE #1

March 24, 2020

The Premier has announced Ontario is asking all essential businesses to remain open. Opticians seem to fall into this category as we dispense medical devices, including safety eyewear. Last Friday the Chief Medical Officer said only emergency care should be carried out. Confusing. Opticians must make themselves available, one way or another. More on that in our next post. This takes us all a big step beyond the previously issued restrictions and requirements for social distancing. Practice social distancing and wash your hands, surfaces and eyewear you touch.

We are going to get through this. How we behave now will dictate how long and how devastating this pandemic might be.

Stay healthy and be safe!!
