Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability
Relating to Coronavirus/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.
OMAAT Academy has put in place protective measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, OMAAT Academy cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, participating in these activities could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
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 participating in the OMAAT Academy workshop 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 while participating in the OMAAT Academy workshop may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, OMAAT Academy volunteers, classified staff, coaches, 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 the Participant(s) I am taking responsibility for and 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 child(ren)’s attendance in activities or participation in the OMAAT Academy program (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the OMAAT Academy, 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 OMAAT Academy, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any of the OMAAT Academy programs.
The safety of our employees, students, families and visitors remains OMAAT Academy’s priority. To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the potential risk of exposure to all parties, we are conducting a simple screening questionnaire with this waiver. Your participation is important to help us take precautionary measures to protect you, your Child(ren) and everyone on campus. Please circle your answers.
