I acknowledge the contagious nature of the Coronavirus/COVID-19, and I further acknowledge that Sidewalk Hope has put protocols and preventative measures in place for the benefit of the communities we serve and the variety of needs among all volunteers.
I understand that Sidewalk Hope does not require volunteers to have a COVID vaccination to serve as a volunteer; wearing personal protection masks are optional; Sidewalk Hope does provide masks for anyone who desires to wear one; and appropriate social distancing is still a recommended practice not only for COVID precautions, but also to provide and teach safe boundaries between children and adults. I understand I am responsible to follow all safety protocols while volunteering with Sidewalk Hope, and I further acknowledge I may still be at risk of contracting the virus even when using these precautions.
With full knowledge of these risks, I hereby forever waive and discharge Sidewalk Hope, its board, officers, employees, representatives, and assigns from any and all liabilities, claims, demands, actions, and causes of action directly or indirectly arising out of or related to any loss, damage, injury, or death that may be sustained by me or my family related to COVID.
If I bring minor children (under the age of 18) to volunteer with Sidewalk Hope, I acknowledge they are to be under my constant watch and care while working as volunteers. I understand the above waiver also applies to any children under my care and brought to Sidewalk Hope activities.
I voluntarily agree to assume all the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury or illness to myself or my child(ren) that may be experienced or incurred in connection with our voluntary attendance as a Sidewalk Hope volunteer.
I HAVE CAREFULLY READ AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ALL PROVISIONS OF THIS RELEASE, AND FREELY AND KNOWINGLY ASSUME THE RISK AND WAIVE MY RIGHTS CONCERNING LIABILITY AS DESCRIBED ABOVE:
