South Australia customers
All of our stores are complying with the latest guidelines published by the SA Government in relation to mask wearing in a health care setting. The guidelines require everyone present in a health care setting, including health care professionals, employees, patients, visitors and contractors, to wear a single-use surgical mask.
This means that all of our optometrists, audiology professionals and team members will be wearing surgical masks, and we ask that if you are visiting one of our stores that you also follow the government requirement and wear a surgical mask while you’re in-store.
Unfortunately a reusable mask isn’t suitable according to the published guidelines - it needs to be a surgical mask.
Keeping you safe in-store
We’re doing everything we can to keep customers and team members safe in-store with enhanced COVID‑19 protocols in place. Our stores are following all government health and safety advice to do out bit in helping to reduce the risk and stop the spread of COVID‑19.
This includes restricting the number of people who can be in-store at any one time. We have a team member to greet patients at the front door and they are responsible for controlling the number of people in-store to ensure we don’t exceed the allowed capacity. They will also provide patients and customers with hand sanitiser.
Where face masks are mandatory, such as in Victoria and South Australia, our teams are wearing face masks, and our optometrists and audiology professionals continue to follow health department guidance in relation to wearing personal protective equipment (PPE).
We have a cleaning roster and stores are following enhanced cleaning and hygiene protocols including disinfecting test rooms and equipment after each patient, cleaning the retail area throughout the day, including frames and hearing aids, and we have hygiene screens in place both at our reception desk and our dispensing desks.
When your glasses or contact lenses are ready to collect, we now have an express collection or home delivery option if you are not able to come in store or would like to limit the time you spend in store. Just speak to one of our team members about your options and they’ll be more than happy to assist.
If you have any concerns before visiting one of our stores, or when in-store, please feel free to speak to a member of the team.
Social distancing in-store
To protect our customers and team members, our stores will be practicing social distancing and we will be limiting the number of people that can be in our stores at one time.
You will find a poster at the front of the store detailing how many people can be in the store at one time. One of our team members will be at the front of the store to assist customers.
