Our COVID-19 Policy 

We value the health and safety of all clients, providers, audiences, and facility personnel. Therefore, to set forth measures for the prevention/mitigation of COVID-19 and related illnesses in the conduct of business, we have established this Policy in conformity with the COVID-19 guidelines/recommendations of the U.S. Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in effect as of 8/1/22 and upon which this Policy exclusively relies.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 guidelines and recommendations are located at: https://www.cdc.gov/.

All with whom we conduct business (including, but not limited to, clients, providers, independent contractors, facility/venue staff, and facility/venue personnel, residents, and visitors) are subject to this Policy. Each party is responsible for: 1) complying with all CDC guidelines in effect at the time that services are provided, 2) reviewing relevant state/local guidelines in order to determine the level of conduct required for compliance in the specific locality where services are to be delivered, and 3) meeting or exceeding all CDC/State/Local Guideline Standards in effect when services are rendered. ​State COVID-19 guidelines/recommendations can be found at:

Group ​service providers are also subject to Covid-related requirements of the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), as may apply to their respective subcontractors/employees/personnel and located at: https://www.osha.gov/coronavirus.

Meriatrics LLC reserves the right to refuse, modify, cancel, postpone and/or reschedule services if, in our sole opinion, doing so is warranted for the potential health/safety of others. We may also change/modify this Policy at any time, for any reason.

COVID-19 (and related illnesses) can pose serious health risks. While this Policy is intended to help mitigate virus spread, we are unable to make any guarantees that you or others will not become exposed/infected. Parties subject to this Policy accept all inherent risks and acknowledge that all risks incurred or suffered are personally/individually assumed, and not the responsibility of Meriatrics LLC.  

Thank you. Your understanding and compliance are greatly appreciated.

* Rescheduling: COVID-related service cancellations will be rescheduled subject to client preference, mutual agreement between the parties, provider availability and CDC-recommended safety/medical protocols.
