Covid-19 Treatment Consent Form
Based on what is currently known about COVID-19, the spread is thought to occur mostly from person-to-person via respiratory droplets among close contacts. Close contact can occur from being within approximately 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for a prolonged period of time.
I understand that carriers of COVID-19 may not show symptoms but may still be highly contagious.
I understand that if I visit or live with someone in a high risk/ vulnerable category, then I should avoid close contact with others.
I understand that due to the unknowns of this virus, the number of other patients that have been in the practice and the nature of the treatments performed here, that I may have an increased risk of contracting the virus by being in the practice and receiving treatment here.
Known symptoms representative of COVID-19, according to the NHS:
- high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
