Assumption of the Risk and Waivers 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, provincial, and local governments and federal and provincial health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. K9 Klubhouse Agility (“the Club”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Club cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending the Club could increase your risk of contracting COVID19. By agreeing, you acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending the Club 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 the Club may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Club 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 myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with my attendance at the Club or participation in Club programming (“Claims”). On my behalf, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, lorrie@ge, and hold harmless the Club, its employees, agents, and representatives, lorrie@or K9 Central Pet Resort where the events are held, 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 the Club, its employees, agents, and representatives, and K9 Central Pet Resort, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Club program. In consideration for being allowed to attend, I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Club and K9 Central Pet Resort, from all liability or claims of any nature by myself, my guests and family members.
