The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to be spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a a result provincial and federal health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups and people. Queenst Beauty has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 with strict cleaning measures and a strong recommendation to wear masks during appointments if possible. Further, attending to appointments in the studio could increase your risk of contracting COVID-19. By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 by attending the appointment and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed or infected by COVID-19 at Queenst Beauty may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself (including but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my family may experience or incur in connection with my attendance at Queenst Beauty.
