COVID-19 PROGRAMS | WAIVERS
Assumption of 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. Richland County Recreation Commission, hereinafter referred to as the “Commission” has created new protocols and put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Commission, cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending any program may increase your risk of contracting COVID-19, and may increase the risk of transmitting COVID-19 to others.
I acknowledge the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I, or members of my group or organization, may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by participating in any way in any event, program, activity, reservation, or rental taking place in the Commission’s facility or park, 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 in the Commission’s facility or park may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, the Commission’s employees, volunteers, and other participants and their families. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself or members of my group or organization, including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death, illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that they or I may experience or incur in connection with participation in any event, program, activity, reservation, or rental taking place in the Commission’s facility. I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Commission, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from any claims related to COVID-19, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs, or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Richland County Recreation Commission Board of Commissioners and its employees, agents, and representatives from any claim that may arise from or in connection with my or members of my group or organization’s participation in any program taking place in the Commission’s facility, including claims related to COVID-19. I understand and agree that this release includes any claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the Commission, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any of the Commission’s program.
