The undersigned has previously executed a Waiver and Release of Liability as a part of the membership application, or participation or volunteer forms with the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties (YMCA). In light of current events and in consideration of receiving permission to be on YMCA’s premises, I further acknowledge and agree that such Waiver and Release includes, but is not limited to, injuries and damages and loss associated with exposure to illness, germs, bacteria, viruses, the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), and any other sicknesses that may carry with it the risk of damages, loss, claims, quarantine requirements, liability or expense of any kind, personal injury, medical conditions and disabilities, temporary or permanent, and even death. I further acknowledge and agree:
- due to the nature of the facilities, services, and programs offered by the YMCA, social distancing of six (6) feet per person among children and their caregivers in a childcare setting may not be possible. The undersigned fully understands and appreciates both the known and potential dangers of utilizing the facilities, services, and programs of the YMCA whether such distancing is enacted or enforced or not, and acknowledges that use thereof by the undersigned and/or such participating children may, despite the YMCA’s reasonable efforts to mitigate the dangers, whether active or inactive, result in exposure to medical risks or illnesses, which could result in quarantine requirements, serious illness, disability or death.
- the YMCA may revise its procedures at any time based on updated recommended guidance and protocols issued by public health agencies and further agrees to comply with the YMCA’s revised procedures while utilizing the facilities, services, and programs of the YMCA.
THE UNDERSIGNED further expressly agrees that the foregoing ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY, AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the laws of the State of Washington and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
I HAVE CAREFULLY READ AND VOLUNTARILY SIGN THIS ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY, AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT AND FURTHER AGREE THAT NO ORAL REPRESENTATIONS, STATEMENTS OR INDUCEMENT APART FROM THE FOREGOING WRITTEN AGREEMENT HAVE BEEN MADE. I AM AWARE THAT BY AGREEING TO THIS AGREEMENT I AM GIVING UP VALUABLE LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO RECOVER DAMAGES FROM THE YMCA IN CASE OF ILLNESS, INJURY, DEATH OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, INCLUDING, FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT AND WITHOUT LIMITATION, EXPOSURE TO COVID-19 AT ANY YMCA FACILITY OR PROGRAM AND ANY ILLNESS, INJURY OR DEATH RESULTING THEREFROM. I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS DOCUMENT IS A PROMISE NOT TO SUE AND A RELEASE OF AND INDEMNIFICATION FOR ALL CLAIMS. IF SIGNING ON BEHALF OF MINOR: I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS AGREEMENT IS MADE ON BEHALF OF MY MINOR CHILD(REN) AND/OR LEGAL WARDS AND I REPRESENT AND WARRANT TO THE YMCA THAT I HAVE FULL AUTHORITY TO SIGN THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF SUCH MINOR(S).
