Dear LION Eye Group Patients:

We at LION consider the health of our patients our number one priority. Amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in New York, we want to ensure you we are following safe practices in all our offices.

  1. What we Know: Coronavirus is a respiratory disease with flu like symptoms such as cough, fever, sneezing accompanied by shortness of breath. It is spreading globally. Its newness and contagiousness present a threat due to lack of vaccine.
  2. What LION is Doing:
    • We are wiping down surfaces at our offices several times daily especially door handles and equipment.
    • We have removed all newspapers and magazines from our waiting rooms. We ask that you bring your own and to take it with you when you leave.
    • We have asked our employees to stay home if they are not feeling well.
    • We are placing alcohol-based cleaners throughout our offices for patient and employee use.
  3. What you can do:
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
    • Avoid touching your face, mouth, eyes, and nose.
    • If you are not feeling well, STAY HOME.
    • Do not shake hands with anyone.
    • Cover your mouth with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when you sneeze.
    • Reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling healthy. We will accommodate!

We all have a responsibility to do our part to limit the spread of this virus and other illnesses, especially to those at a higher risk due to age, compromised immunity, or pre-existing conditions. We appreciate your patronage and compliance for the betterment of everyone’s health.
