MOUNT HEBRON MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH (“MHMBC”)
CORONAVIRUS (“COVID-19”) WAIVER OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION
1. I agree that I am personally responsible for my safety and actions and those of my minor children while attending any worship service, funeral, wake/visitation, wedding, or any other special programming or any activity at MHMBC. I agree to comply with all MHMBC policies and rules, including but not limited to all MHMBC policies, signage, and instructions regarding COVID-19. Because MHMBC is open for use by other individuals, I recognize that I am at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19.
With full awareness and appreciation of the risks involved, I, for myself, and on behalf my family, spouse, children, estate, heirs, executors, administrators, assigns and personal representatives, hereby forever release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue MHMBC, its officers, ministers, Joint Board members (deacons and trustees), volunteers, church members, employees, agents, attorneys, representatives, independent contractors, successors and assigns (collectively the “Released Parties”) from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions, and causes of action whatsoever, directly or indirectly arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by me related to COVID-19 whether caused by the negligence of the Released Parties, any third-party using MHMBC, or otherwise, while participating in any activity while in, on, or around MHMBC and/or while using any of MHMBC facilities.
2. I agree on behalf of myself and my minor children to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Released Parties from and against any and all costs, expenses, damages, claims, lawsuits, judgments, losses, and/or liabilities (including attorneys’ fees) arising either directly or indirectly from or related to any and all claims made by or against any of the Released Parties due to bodily injury, death, loss of use, monetary loss or any other injury from or related to my use/presence at MHMBC facilities, whether caused by the negligence of the Released Parties or otherwise specifically related to COVID-19.
3. By signing below, I acknowledge and represent that I have read the foregoing Waiver of Liability, understand it and sign it voluntarily as my own free act and deed, including without limitation the Release of Liability and Indemnification requirements contained in this document; I am sufficiently informed about the risks involved and still decide to sign this document; no oral representations, statements, or inducements, apart from the foregoing written agreement, have been made; I am at least eighteen (18) years of age and fully competent; and I execute this document for full adequate, and complete consideration fully intending to be bound by the same. I agree that this Waiver of Liability shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Texas law, and that if any of the provisions hereof are found to be unenforceable, the remainder shall be enforced as fully as possible and the unenforceable provision(s) shall be deemed modified to the limited extent required to permit enforcement of the Waiver of Liability as a whole.
