As we transition into the holiday season we are still battling Covid19. Right now in Suffolk County, numbers are dropping as more people get vaccinated. As of November 5, 2021, there have been 236,082 cases of COVID19. Since March of 2020, there have been 3,634 fatalities. I highly encourage everyone who is eligible to get vaccinated. That is the only way we will beat this. In my office, we are all vaccinated and many of my patients have received boosters. However, the delta variant remains a problem. At Island Retina we are being just as diligent as ever with screening, masking-up, cleaning, disinfecting, maintaining social distancing, keeping the waiting room limited to patients only, and checking temperatures. We want our patients to be safe!
We look forward to taking care of you, so please don’t hesitate to call! Let’s have a healthy and happy 2022!
