Tidewater Eye Centers have a “mask optional” policy. TEC providers, employees, patients, family members, visitors, and vendors can choose to wear a mask in TEC clinic offices. Masks are welcomed and encouraged for those who choose to wear them, and they will be available onsite upon request. We ask that everyone exercise kindness, compassion, and patience toward others in support of their personal choice to wear a mask. COVID levels and trends are closely being monitored, and policies may be adjusted as needed.
