JMEdits COVID EblastHeader

We are well into the weirdest time any of us have ever experienced. Not since World War II have we seen these kinds of actions and steps to keep us safe.

Bars and restaurants are shuttered by order of the Governor and social distancing leaves many of us confined to our homes. Everyone is more tech savvy as we learn Facetime, Netflix, video streaming and GrubHub.

Businesses are limited to “essential services” only making most of us reorder our priorities. However important we thought our work was before this, we have a new found appreciation for the folks who deliver goods to the store, stock the shelves, scrub the floors and take out the garbage.

Kids are learning online, people who never dreamed they could be working remotely are doing so, and tele-everything is taking off.

With Governor Walz’ announcement on March 25th, we have at least another 2 weeks of Shelter In Place to endure (enjoy?).

At Richie Eye Clinic, we are doing our part, too. We are open on a limited basis for urgent and emergent problems including eye pain, sudden loss of vision, infections, foreign bodies in the eye, and those who are receiving injections for macular degeneration, diabetes, and other retinal issues.

Although we have limited staffing, we are here to answer your questions, so if your call goes to voicemail, please leave a message; we will return your call as soon as possible.

As society continues in “lockdown” mode, rest assured that we are here for you when you need us and, together, we will get through this.

Sincerely,

Mike Richie
