SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19: CLIENT NOTICE

Policy For In-Person Programming:

  1. Acumen Institute wants to remind our clients about the risks of contracting COVID-19 even as you seek out care. SARS-CoV-2 is a highly contagious virus that can lead to serious illness and even death - particularly, in the absence of vaccination and mitigation practices. Current data suggests that older individuals with certain comorbidities (e.g. hypertension, obesity, diabetes, respiratory or heart disease, etc.) may be at greater risk.

  2. The COVID-19 disease has a long incubation period. You, your patients, other clients, and our staff may have the COVID-19 virus, be asymptomatic, and yet still be highly contagious.

  3. The very act of leaving home and coming to our facility carries an inherent risk of SARS-CoV-2 exposure, and then COVID-19. 

  4. The simplest, most scientifically-proven prevention methods to date include:

  • Wearing a surgical mask, N95, or KN95.

  • Carry out food rather than eating in restaurants.

  • Avoid any close contact with people who have COVID-19 symptoms (cough, fever, body aches, and general fatigue).

  • Frequent hand washing or sanitizing for at least 20 seconds before and after eating, touching the face or nose, or putting on and taking off face masks.

Please review this information carefully, and confirm that you understand its contents. We will ask that you acknowledge that understanding prior to any services provided at Acumen.  We also require you to accept that there is a potential increased risk of contracting the COVID-19 disease if you visit or receive services outside of your home, including on-site contact with our staff. We will also ask you to acknowledge that you could contract the COVID-19 from outside this facility in traveling to or when staying in Douglas County, KS unrelated to your visit with us in the absence of safe practices. We will ask you to abide by the COVID-19 prevention measures listed above. We will ask you to agree to ask the staff, your primary doctor, and dwelling partners, and those who come in near contact with you to do the same.

We hope you and your loved ones continue to be safe and well during this unprecedented time.
