Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19
As an addendum to the general liability waiver you signed, you agree and
understand the following:
By entering this facility, you are aware that you fully accept all known and
unknown risks, including the potential risk of exposure to respiratory illnesses such as the coronavirus (COVID-19). 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.
Candlestick Pilates has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Candlestick Pilates and its employees cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending Candlestick Pilates could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I 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 Candlestick Pilates 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 Candlestick Pilates may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Candlestick Pilates employees, clients and class participants.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury (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 and participation in classes and private sessions at Candlestick Pilates (“Claims”). I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless Candlestick Pilates, 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 Candlestick Pilates, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Candlestick Pilates program.
I voluntarily agree to forgo participation and attendance at Candlestick Pilates if I have any of the following confirmed COVID-19 symptoms:
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Muscle pain
• Sore throat
• New loss of taste or smell
This list is not all possible symptoms. Other less common symptoms have been reported, including gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
I voluntarily agree to notify and inform Candlestick Pilates management if I have tested positive for COVID-19 after attending and participating in class at Candlestick Pilates. I acknowledge that my identity will remain confidential after notifying Candlestick Pilates of a positive COVID-19 test.
