Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/Covid 19
Aug 14, 2022 08:52 PM
The novel coronavirus, 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.
In the Key of Dance has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, In the Key of Dance cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending In the Key of Dance 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 my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participation 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 In the Key of Dance may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, In the Key of Dance 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 my child(ren) or 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 child(ren)’s attendance at In the Key of Dance or participation in programming (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless In the Key of Dance, 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 In the Key of Dance, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any of In the Key of Dance’s programs.
I represent that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or illness I or my dancer may suffer or cause while participating in this activity, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or illness myself. I further represent that I have no medical or physical condition which could interfere with my safety in this activity, or else I am willing to assume – and bear the costs of – all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any such condition.
I agree that if my dancer or I are exposed or infected by COVID-19 during my participation in this activity, then I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against the parties being released on the basis of any claim for negligence.
I agree that I will practice safe social distancing and clean hygiene during my participation at In the Key of Dance.
