I understand that COVID-19 has a long incubation period during which time carriers of the virus may show no symptoms and still be highly contagious. It may not be possible to determine whether someone has COVID-19 or not given current limits in virus testing. I understand that there is therefore a risk that a person attending Orthodontics on Berrigan and/or Orthodontics on St Quentin may be infected with COVID-19 and expose either me, my child or an accompanying person to COVID-19.
In light of the known risks in relation to contracting COVID-19, I consent to me or my child (as relevant) receiving orthodontic treatment at Orthodontics on Berrigan and/or Orthodontics on St Quentin during the COVID-19 pandemic period.
We thank you for your understanding in implementing these measures which are designed to preserve your health and safety, that of our other patients and our team, and limit the community transmission of COVID-19. If you have any questions in relation to this COVID-19 Questionnaire and the protocols in place in our office, please email email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
