Walltown Children’s Theatre Covid-19 Liability Waiver
While participating in events held or sponsored by Walltown Children’s Theatre (“WCT”), “social distancing” must be practiced and face coverings worn at all times to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is extremely con- tagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, WCT has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
In light of the ongoing spread of COVID-19, individuals who fall within any of the cat- egories below should not engage in WCT events and/or other face to face fundraising activities. By attending a WCT event, you certify that you do not fall into any of the following categories:
1. Individuals who currently or within the past fourteen (14) days have experienced any symptoms associated with COVID-19, which include fever, cough, and short- ness of breath among others (see https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/ symptoms-testing/symptoms.html);
2. Individuals who have traveled at any point in the past fourteen (14) days either internationally or to a community in the U.S. that has experienced or is experiencing sustained community spread of COVID-19; or
3. Individuals who believe that they may have been exposed to a confirmed or sus- pected case of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for their treatment.
4. Individuals who, for any reason have taken a COVID-19 test and are awaiting the result.
DUTY TO SELF-MONITOR:
Participants and volunteers agree to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 (symptoms typically include fever, cough, and shortness of breath) and, contact WCT at connect@wctdurham.org if he/she experiences symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days after participating or volunteering with WCT.
