INDIVIDUAL ATTESTATION AND WAIVER
As a result of Covid-19, the world and, of course, the Salon are experiencing unprecedented times and challenges. In an effort to insure the safety of you, our employees and other clients, the Salon has established protocols. We are asking all individuals to refrain from coming to the Salon if they, or any family or friend they have been in contact with in the last several weeks is feeling unwell, exhibiting cold symptoms, flu-like symptoms, respiratory illness, or any other physical manifestations of illness, irrespective of whether they have or have not tested positive or negative for Covid-19. We will gladly reschedule your appointment. If you come to the Salon you must wear a mask at all times that you are in the Salon. Additionally, when you arrive you will have to have your temperature taken with a non-contact thermometer and we will ask for you to give an attestation that you are not experiencing symptoms and that you have not been in recent contact with anyone known to have symptoms. If you do have a temperature of 100 or over, are experiencing symptoms or have been in recent contact with someone who has symptoms, you will not be able to receive service at that time and we will call you to reschedule your appointment.
While we are being incredibly diligent to try to insure everyone’s safety, there is no possible way to guarantee that individuals will not inadvertently risk exposure to Covid-19. Nothing is failsafe. As such, if you choose to enter the Salon during the COVID-19 pandemic for the services booked, you will be entering the Salon knowing there is risk and irrespective of knowing about this very real risk you are choosing to voluntarily enter the premises and fully assume the risk of potential exposure in doing so.
Accepting this waiver and attestation of liability regarding Covid-19 is a condition to entering the Salon. By entering the Salon and receiving services you represent and agree that:
(1) you are fully aware of the risks involved with entering the Salon during the COVID-19 pandemic, or with respect to contracting COVID-19 or any related or similar infection (which together are herein jointly referred to as “COVID-19”), and you understand and agree that the Salon is not requiring you to enter the Salon premises, and that you are choosing to do so voluntarily;
(2) you have read, understand and will fully comply with answering truthfully all of the questions about whether you are or have recently (the last 14 days) been in contact with anyone known to have COVID-19, whether you have had COVID-19 in the last 14 days, whether you have experienced any respiratory symptoms or other known COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days, or have been around or in recent contact with anyone that has experienced any of these symptoms or conditions.
Your attestation and waiver of liability:
By signing below, I acknowledge that the risks involved with entering the Salon and being in the presence of other people during the COVID-19 pandemic include, but are not limited to, contracting COVID-19, respiratory failure, death, and transmitting COVID-19 to family or household members and others who may also suffer these effects. I further understand that compliance with the COVID-19 Policy will not eliminate these risks, even with social distancing and other safety measures in place at the Salon. Notwithstanding the foregoing, I elect to voluntarily participate in entering the Salon with full knowledge that doing so may be hazardous to my health and those whom I may come into contact with.
I voluntarily assume full responsibility for any risks of loss or personal injury, including serious illness, injury or death, that may be sustained by me or by others who come into contact with me, as a result of my presence in the Salon during COVID-19, whether caused by the negligence of the COMPANY or otherwise. I release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the Salon, or its owners, officers, directors, or employees (the “Releasees”) from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions and causes of action whatsoever arising out of or related to any loss, damage, illness, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by me or by others who come into contact with me, whether caused by the negligence of the Releasees, or otherwise, as a result of, or related to my decision to enter the Salon during COVID-19.
By my signature below, I acknowledge that this Waiver will prevent me from filing suit, for arbitration or making any claims (including for damages) against the Releasees in the event of illness, injury or death relating to my presence at the Salon during or in connection with COVID-19.
I UNDERSTAND THIS IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND AGREE THAT IT IS VALID FOREVER. It is my express intent that this Waiver binds: (i) the members of my family and spouse, if I am alive, and (ii) my heirs, assigns and personal representatives, if I am deceased.
If any of the provisions, terms or clauses of this Waiver are declared illegal, unenforceable or ineffective in a legal forum, those provisions, terms and clauses shall be deemed severable, such that all other provisions, terms and clauses of this Waiver shall remain valid and binding upon both parties.
I agree that this Waiver shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any laws, rules or provisions that would cause the application of laws of any jurisdiction other than those of the State of New York.
