ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK AND WIAVER OF LIABILITY RELATING TO CONRONAVIRUS/COVID-19
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.
The Harker Heights Parks and Recreation Department (“HHPRD”) has created new protocols and put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, HHPRD cannot guarantee that you or your attendees will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending any program may increase your or attendees’ risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that attendee(s) and I may be exposed to, or infected by COVID-19 by attending program(s) at an HHPRD facility, 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 program(s) at an HHPRD facility may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, HHPRD employees, instructors, volunteers, and program participant and their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to attendees 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 attendees may experience or incur in connection with attendance of program(s) at an HHPRD facility. On my behalf, and on behalf of my attendees, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless HHPRD, 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 HHPRD, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after attendance of program(s) at an HHPRD facility.
