Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) Operating Standards Agreement
The following protocols and recommendations have been reviewed and compiled from the honorable, scientific and reliable sources, The CDC and National Scientific Volunteer Database (NSVD).
The virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to others by infected persons who have few or no symptoms.

Due to the rising concerns of the ongoing pandemic, the following information is an agreement that informs and protects both the client(s) and hired artist(s) from the dangers associated with the contagion and serves as risk reduction guidelines for safety.
