COVID-19 has created new and unique challenges for communities across the globe. The Board of Directors and the Leadership Team has quickly implemented every recommendation by the CDC and the local/state health departments.
However, we have made the decision to be proactive. Most medical professionals believe that the virus will continue to spread. WIth that in mind, the Board of Directors and the Leadership Team have chosen to close both the Center for Vision Health as well as Dallas Day School. It is our current plan to re-open on March 30th.
