COVID WAIVER

For the protection of our youth, we ask that anyone who has had symptoms of sickness or contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days to postpone their in-person attendance until after two weeks without symptoms. 

Although we are committed to following all public health measures as outlined by Alberta Health Services, attending an in-person gathering does carry with it some degree of risk for transmission of COVID-19. By attending this gathering, you acknowledge that you accept those risks and will not hold Epic Youth Services liable.

EPIC COUNSELLING CLAUSE

EPIC offers free optional Life Coaching sessions to participants.  Confidentiality is a right for anyone attending counselling at EPIC. Notes written after each session are kept in a secure location. EPIC staff & support workers have a duty of care to break confidentiality if they believe that the person receiving counselling is at risk and/or at risk of harming themselves or others. 

I have read and I understand the process above. I agree for my child/ward to engage in EPIC’s counselling services. I will contact EPIC if I have further questions.
