I also understand that the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. I further understand that COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread by person-to-person contact; and, as a result, the health minister has recommend social distancing. I recognize that all the staff at SKN Holistic Rejuvenation Clinic including my practitioner are closely monitoring this situation and have put in place reasonable preventative measures aimed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, given the nature of the virus, I understand there is an inherent risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 by virtue of proceeding with this aesthetic treatment.
I hereby acknowledge and assume the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 through this aesthetic service and I give my permission for all the staff at SKN Holistic Rejuvenation Clinic to proceed with the aesthetic service.
I understand that, even if I have been tested for COVID and received a negative test result, the tests in some cases may fail to detect the virus or I may have contracted COVID after the test.
I understand that possible exposure to COVID-19 before/during/after my aesthetic service may result in the following: a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, extended quarantine/self-isolation, additional tests, hospitalization that may require medical therapy, Intensive Care treatment, possible need for intubation/ventilator support, short-term or long-term intubation, other potential complications, and the risk of death.
I understand that COVID-19 may cause additional risks, some or many of which may not currently be known at this time, in addition to the risks described herein.
I have been given the option to defer my treatment/procedure to a later date. However, I understand all the potential risks, including but not limited to the potential short-term and long-term complications related to COVID-19, and I would like to proceed with my desired treatment/procedure.
