Covid-19 Update


Florida Vision Technology has joined our nationwide effort to vigorously monitor and prevent further spread of the coronavirus and invites you to join us in that effort to. 

The health of our clients and team members is our paramount concern!!  

Given the current situation, we will continue servicing our clients during our normal business hours via phone, email, etc. communication methods.We will discontinue in person meetings until further notice, this includes both our Fort Lauderdale and Largo stores being closed. This will avoid exposure to our clients or associated to accidental transmission of the virus, to protect the more vulnerable family/friends/people in our respective communities.

In accordance with CDC guidance, we encourage you to diligently adhere to the following precautions to mitigate further transmission of the virus:

  • If you are sick, please return to or remain at home
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and warm water for a minimum of 20 seconds
  • Use alcohol-based (60-95%) hand sanitizer frequently
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve, elbow, shoulder, or tissue when you cough or sneeze
  • Dispose of used tissues in a lined trash receptacle immediately
  • Routinely wipe down your work area with alcohol-based cleaners and be diligent abut cleaning hands after contacting high-touch surface including door handles, bathroom fixtures, keyboards, remote controls, etc.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Contact health officials immediately if you show symptoms or believe you have been exposed to the virus
  • If you have any questions or concerns during this time, please let us know, we will be in contact via social media, email, and phone. Please check our social media for updates on when the two florida locations will open up again. Please be safe, and continue to wash your hands!
