SIGNATURE OF PATIENT
I understand the novel coronavirus causes the disease known as COVID-19 and that it is currently a pandemic. I understand the novel coronavirus virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be contagious. For this reason, it is recommended to stay home and avoid close contact with other people when at all possible.(initial)
