As you know, organizations across the country are taking precautions to ensure community health and safety in light of COVID-19. The team at NewView has been carefully monitoring the situation and following the guidance of local and federal officials. We have a few important updates to share, and we will be updating with the latest information as we have it.
- We have decided to postpone our OKC fundraising luncheon, set to take place on Wednesday, April 8 at The Criterion. Many of our clients and attendees fit within higher risk categories as determined by the CDC, and we simply do not want to risk any health complications for anyone in our community.
- Our Centers for Low Vision and Blindness will remain open at this time, and we are taking every recommended precautionary measure to keep our staff and clients safe and healthy. These include regular sanitation of public spaces and surfaces, social distancing practices, and encouraging regular hand washing and sanitizing.
- If you are feeling sick, are immunocompromised, or know you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and are scheduled for an appointment, we ask that you stay home. Please call our clinic at (855) 811-9699 to reschedule.
- We are monitoring the situation closely and will communicate any additional updates as we have them.
We want our community to know that the NewView mission is full steam ahead. We are committed to providing the highest quality care and support for those with low vision in Oklahoma, and we are taking every precautionary measure to keep our staff and clients safe and healthy.
