The coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is reported to be extremely contagious. The state of medical knowledge is evolving, but the virus is believed to spread from person-to-person contact and/or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects, and possibly in the air. People reportedly can be infected and show no symptoms and therefore spread the disease. There is no known definitive treatment or cure for COVID-19. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness and even death.
The Youth Education and Development Academy (YEDA) including each of their affiliates, subsidiaries, members, employees, officers, instructors, aides, and/or agents (the “Released Parties”) cannot prevent you from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while participating in their programs, services or premises. It is not possible to fully protect against the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to participate, you or your child may be exposing yourself to and/or increasing your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK
I have read and understand the above warning concerning COVID-19. I hereby choose to accept the risk of contracting COVID-19 for myself, and for my family members or others who may be exposed, in order to participate in any activities sponsored by YEDA, Courtology, Flofiyah LLC and any other business in connection to YEDA. These services are of such value to me that I accept the risk of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 in order to participate.
WAIVER OF LAWSUIT/LIABILITY
I hereby forever release and waive my right to bring suit against the Released Parties in connection with exposure, infection, and/or spread of COVID-19 related to my participation in the Course. I understand that this waiver means I give up my right to bring any claims including for personal injuries, death, disease or property losses, or any other loss, including but not limited to claims of negligence, and give up any claim I may have to seek damages, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen.
