ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY
RELATING TO CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19
The novel coronavirus, COVD-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 have, in many location, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. As these prohibitions and restrictions are lifted, SHOSHINKAN of Las Vegas (Shoshinkan) has reopened.
Shoshinkan has put in place preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of COVID-19: however, Shoshinkan cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, participating in the martial arts training at Shoshinkan could possibly increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, assumption of the risk, and waiver of liability form relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19, I hereby acknowledge the contagious nature of Coronavirus/COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I and/or my child(ren) may be exposed to or infected by Coronavirus/COVID-19 by attending and participating in the martial arts training at Shoshinkan and that such possible 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 Coronavirus/COVID-19 at Shoshinkan may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including but not limited to, Shoshinkan employees, volunteers, and any and all Shoshinkan participants and their families.
I hereby voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself and/or my child(ren), including but not limited to personal injury, disability, and death, illness, damages, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my or my child(ren)’s participation at Shoshinkan.
On behalf of myself, and on behalf of my child(ren), I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless Shoshinkan, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from any 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 upon the actions, omissions, or negligence of Shoshinkan, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a Coronavirus/COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Shoshinkan program.
