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.
By signing this waiver, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my family, friends and/or I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participating in the New Albany Sand Volleyball program 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 may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, league organizers, Grace Life Nazarene church, 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 family, friends or 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 family and friends may experience or incur in connection with my or their attendance at the program events and games. On my behalf, and on behalf of my family, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the New Albany Sand Volleyball program and Grace Life Church of the Nazarene, 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 the the church and this program, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any program events or games.
