Maui Optometry and Dr. Linda L Nguyen are continuing to provide services to customers during the COVID-19 crisis. This includes the Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers to Plan and Respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and Cleaning and Disinfecting Facilities. Additionally, Maui Optometry has been screening our employees before every work shift to ensure that no employee is suffering any of the known symptoms of COVID-19, including running a fever, having a dry cough, or experiencing shortness of breath. However, it is also known that those without symptoms may still be capable of infecting others as an asymptomatic individual with COVID-19 and despite precautions taken the virus may still be present and capable of infecting individuals.
Knowing this information, I voluntarily elect to continue with my scheduled appointment with Maui Optometry and I hereby agree to accept and assume any and all risks of personal injury or death.

In consideration for being treated by Maui Optometry, on behalf of myself, my personal representatives, heirs, next of kin, successors and assigns, I forever:

- b. defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Maui Optometry, its agencies, officers and employees, from any and all claims of any nature, including all costs, expenses, and attorney's fees, which may in any manner result from or arise out of this agreement, except for claims resulting from or arising out of Maui Optometry willful or intentional negligence.
This release, indemnification, and waiver shall be construed broadly to provide a release, indemnification, and waiver to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law.
I, the undersigned, affirm that I am at least 18 years of age and am freely signing this agreement or that I am signing on behalf of a minor child that I have the legal authority to sign such agreements on behalf of.
