COVID-19 Liability Waiver
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.
United Jiu Jitsu has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, United Jiu Jitsu cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending United Jiu Jitsu could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19. I understand that I must follow United Jiu Jitsu’s guidelines to limit the potential of infection with COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that you may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending United Jiu Jitsu 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 United Jiu Jitsu may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, United Jiu Jitsu 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 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 United Jiu Jitsu. On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless United Jiu Jitsu, 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 United Jiu Jitsu, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any United Jiu Jitsu program.
