COVID-19 is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person and between people in close-contact with one another. The virus is thought to spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

If you or someone you have come in close-contact with have been exposed, are experiencing a fever, cough and/or respiratory symptoms, or have traveled recently, please call us ahead of time to reschedule your appointment.

Across the world, new cases of COVID-19 are being reported, and the U.S. has declared a national emergency. According to the CDC, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low for the majority of people. We continue to follow established infection prevention protocols and remain prepared to care for patients. We have prepared for such scenarios by training our staff and are working with infection control and prevention teams, the CDC, and public health authorities. We are monitoring this issue closely and taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients, staff members and community.

How to protect yourself

You can protect yourself from COVID-19 infection the same way you protect against the common cold or seasonal flu.

  • Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds.
    • Before eating
    • When your hands are visibly soiled
    • After you have used the bathroom, been in public or blown your nose, coughed or sneezed
  • Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol, if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue and throw your used tissues in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wear a face mask if you are sick or are caring for someone who is sick.
  • Put some distance between yourself and others, especially if:
    • Someone near you is sick
    • You are at a higher risk of serious illness
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

If you feel sick

There are several things you should do if you are sick or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, and have a fever or respiratory illness (cough or shortness of breath):

  • Stay home if you are sick or believe you have been exposed to the virus, even if you aren’t showing any symptoms.
  • Avoid public areas and transportation.
  • Call your health care provider for further evaluation.
  • Avoid coming to the emergency department, unless you have a health emergency and/or you have been advised by your health care provider to do so. This helps prevent the risk of spreading COVID-19.
  • Separate yourself from other people and animals as much as possible, while you are sick.
  • Wear a face mask if you are sick.
  • Monitor yourself for a fever, coughing and shortness of breath.
  • Take the same precautions you would if you had the common cold or flu (e.g., wash your hands frequently).

IT WAS PERFECT! Three simple words that sum up the outcome of a remarkable experience. From the moment I was prepped for cataract surgery in November, from the time I was measured and examined by your wonderful staff, and from my first meeting with you, I knew I was in excellent hands from the surgical procedure you were going to perform on my eyes.

Testimonials
Is cataract surgery just a routine operation these days? I needed cataract surgery and Peter Cornell was very highly recommended, so I went to him. Modern technology has made this surgery almost routine, but eyes are highly individual, so be careful! Careful I was in choosing Dr. Cornell, and careful he was in treating my case.
