ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY RELATING TO CORONA VIRUS/COVID-19
The novel coronavirus, commonly known as COVID-19, has been declared to be a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) and the related illnesses and medical conditions called COVID-19 and Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in children are extremely contagious. They are believed to spread primarily through close person-to-person contact, even with asymptomatic individuals.
The Governor has issued Executive Orders which allows for various outdoor activities including baseball and softball. With the reopening of these activities, the borough has implemented a number of preventive measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, there cannot be a guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected as a result of participating in any recreational activity.
By signing this Agreement:
I acknowledge that attending or participating in any North Arlington Little League activity poses an inherent risk of infection and a heightened risk of injury from and exposure to these pandemic illnesses, regardless of the measures taken by North Arlington Little League.
I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and agree to voluntarily and exclusively assume the risk that my child(ren) and I, as well as other members of my household and others with whom I may be in contact, could have exposure to, or be infected by, COVID-19.
I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to, or infected by, COVID-19 could result from the actions, omission, or negligence of myself or others including, but not limited to, volunteers and other program participants and/or their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any aspect of injury, disability, illness, death, damage, loss, claim or expense of any kind that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with the attendance at North Arlington Little League activities; and.
I attest that I will immediately notify the appropriate North Arlington Little League volunteer if my child(ren) demonstrates any of the symptoms of COVID 19 and further, will immediately discontinue participation until cleared by the appropriate medical professional.
I attest that I will notify my child(ren)'s North Arlington Little League manager immediately if my child(ren) has tested positive to COVID-19. I understand that North Arlington Little League shall consult with the North Arlington Health Department for guidance.
I understand that if I fail to notify North Arlington Little League that my child(ren) has tested positive to COVID-19, that all members of my household shall be suspended from North Arlington Little League activities for one year.
I understand this Waiver does not supersede, circumvent or cancel North Arlington Little League's Rules and Regulations.
