“With global discussions happening on COVID-19, our first thoughts should be ones of safety and keeping people well. Hearing health care professionals are adapting to a world with COVID-19 and providing care in a different, but still safe and responsible way. Individuals with hearing loss should know that they can be seen safely and the hearing industry is here to help them.”

“Hearing health care professionals are adopting updated safety and cleanliness practices and limiting the number of people in their offices during a patient visit, while using personal protective equipment. We must continue to practice social distancing whenever possible and use common sense. Lastly, patients should know that safety is our No. 1 concern.”

“For weeks, businesses have been quiet while people stay home and wait to see what’s next. Hearing loss won’t go away, and neither will the patients who need our help. Hearing health care professionals are responsibly adjusting to the current circumstances while continuing to lead with their hearts and care for patients. It’s important that people with hearing loss have the opportunity to safely see a local hearing health care provider in their community for a certified test and receive a hearing aid solution personalized to their ear and their loss.”
