COVID-19 PANDEMIC STUDENT CONSENT FORM
Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19
The novel coronavirus, and the disease caused by it, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.
Peninsula Ballet Theatre (PBT) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, PBT cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending PBT events could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending this event and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at PBT may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, PBT employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my attendance at the event (“Claims”). On my behalf, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless PBT, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of PBT, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any PBT program.
