I, the undersigned client, consent to have my Permanent Makeup Technician perform procedures during the time of the COVID-19 pandemic and after. I understand in-person consultations and having my procedure performed at this time, despite my own efforts and those of my Technician may increase the risk of my exposure to COVID-19. I am aware that exposure to COVID-19 can result in severe illness, intensive therapies, extended intubation and/or ventilator support, life-altering changes to my health, and even death. I am also aware of the possibility that the procedure itself may result in a more severe case of COVID-19 than I might have had without the procedure.
I also understand having my procedure performed at this time increases the risk of my transmission of COVID-19 to my Technician. This virus has a long incubation period, there may be as yet unknown aspects of its transmission, and I realize that I may be contagious, whether or not I have been tested or have symptoms. To reduce the possibility of COVID-19 exposure or transmission at my appointment, I accept that my Technician will implement infection-control procedures with which I must comply, before, during and after procedure, for my own protection as well as that of my Technician. I understand my cooperation is mandatory, whether or not I personally feel such COVID-19 procedures and/or preventive measures are necessary.
I have informed my Technician of any COVID-19 testing, I or any person living with me during the past 14 days has received, as well as the results of that testing, and if I am tested positive between now and the date of my procedure, I will immediately provide the results of that testing to my Technician. I understand my Technician may require that I be tested, possibly at my own expense and regardless of any prior testing, and that the results of that testing must be satisfactory to my Technician before I may receive my procedure.
I confirm neither I nor any individual living with me has any of the COVID-19 symptoms listed by the Centers for Disease Control https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/downloads/COVID19-symptoms.pdf, which website I have consulted; neither I nor any individual living with me during the past 14 days has experienced any such symptoms; and that I and all persons living with me for the past 14 days have practiced all personal hygiene, social distancing and other COVID-19 recommendations contained within all governmental orders issued by my city and province. I understand I must honestly disclose this information to avoid putting myself and others at risk.
All topics above have been discussed with me, and all my questions have been answered to my satisfaction. Being fully informed, I accept the risk of COVID-19 exposure and I will bear the cost of any COVID-19 treatments required. I have been given the opportunity to postpone my in-person procedure until the COVID-19 pandemic is less prevalent, but I choose to have my in-person procedure performed now. I have read this COVID-19 Informed Consent Agreement and am authorized to consent on my behalf.
