Pre-Session Health Check
As a condition of receiving services from AST and its subsidiaries, all clients are required to cooperate with AST to provide the safest environment possible. This includes proactively cancelling sessions when a client is suspected of having COVID or other communicable condition. Clients are expected to be familiar with the symptoms of COVID-19, the flu, strep throat, RSV, and other contagious conditions as described on the CDC website, and should take all reasonable precautions to protect themselves and members of their households, including following generally accepted health guidelines and all local health ordinances.
Testing, Isolation, and Quarantine*
Clients and staff who have a reasonable belief that they may have COVID-19 or other communicable condition are expected to immediately get tested. If a client or staff tests positive, they are expected to isolate according to generally accepted healthcare guidelines.
* From time-to-time, AST, at its sole discretion, may enact more strict testing, quarantine, and/or isolation protocols in response to local conditions.
Services provided by AST are subject to terms and condition set forth in our Client Services Agreement which is available from your local office.
