Special Participation Agreement and Waiver of Liabilityin relation to Risk of Coronavirus Infection (COVID-19) while atKATIE’S DANCE CONNECTION
Thank-you for reading this Agreement carefully. It includes important information about Katie’s Dance Connection’s (herein collectively referred to as ‘KDC’) private lessons, August Technique Camps and other speciality small group activities and describes certain protection sought by KDC if you, your child, or another family member becomes ill or suffers some other loss due to infection of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that may have been caused from begin at KDC or from being exposed by someone else who was at KDC. In consideration of the services of KDC I acknowledge and agree as follows: Activities: The activities of KDC include, but are not limited to, a variety of dance and activities that may make it impossible to consistently implement social distancing of at least 2 meters (6 feet) that may be recommended by any known government authorities. Although KDC will make every effort to implement the guidelines in place by local government authorities and public health, the studio is a place where dancers, instructors and staff are often in contact and near each other every day. KDC will be implementing, as per public health guidelines, cohorts of no more than 10 people (including staff). Although cohorts do not mix, individual cohorts will be connected and will participate and engage in different activities together. This includes, but is not limited to dancing, stretching and potential snack/water breaks. While equipment will be sanitized daily, and hand washing/sanitizing will be done before and after activities, sharing of equipment within the cohort during an activity will be taking place. Risks: KDC will be taking more health and safety precautions this summer. Prior to the start of camp each day, the parent/guardian will have to attest to their child(ren)’s good health and that neither the child(ren) nor any member of their immediate household has traveled within 14 days of the start of the camp session, that they are not exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 and that they have not been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Each staff member will be required to complete an assessment form daily similar to the dancer assessment form. Other precautions during camps/lessons include: encouraging and enforcing more hand washing, more use of hand sanitizers, regular sanitizing of equipment and high contact surfaces including door handles and washrooms with antibacterial wipes and/or spray. Any child or staff that does not feel well for any reason should not attend camp, remain at home, and notify the studio. KDC should be notified if any dancer or staff is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 and/or tests positive for the same. In such circumstances, KDC will notify local Public Health authorities for further guidance and instructions. Even taking these and other extra precautions, dancers and staff will still be exposed to the risk of contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19) or possibly some other illness. Acknowledgement and Assumption of Risks: I have read and understand the KDC activities and risk of exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Although we are taking the necessary precautions at the Studio, the risk of spreading COVID-19 still exists given that both dancers and staff are in contact with other people outside of the studio. I acknowledge and accept the risk that my child(ren) and/or members of my family may contract Coronavirus (COVID-19) with my child(ren) being enrolled at KDC. AGREEMENTS OF RELEASE AND INDEMNITY: I FOR MYSELF AND ON BEHALF OF MY CHILD(REN), HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE POLICIES SET IN PLACE BY KDC AND AGREE TO RELEASE AND FOREVER DISCHARGE (AGREEING TO MAKE NO CLAIM AND NOT SUE) AND INDEMNITY AND HOLD HARMLESS KDC, AND THEIR RESEPECTIVE OWNERS, MEMBERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, SUB-CONTRACTORS, AND VOLUNTEERS (INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLECTIVELY REFERRED TO AS “RELEASED PARTIES”) WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL CLAIMS RELATED TO CONTRACTING THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) OR ANY OTHER ILLNESS AND/OR INJURY AND ANY LOSS, BODILY INJURY, OR DAMAGES ASSOCIATED FROM IT WHICH I, ANY FAMILY MEMBER, OR MY CHILD(REN) MAY SUFFER, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO HIM/HER BEING ENROLLED AT KDC, AND ON OR OFF THE KDC PREMISES. THESE AGREEMENTS OF RELEASE AND INDEMNITY INCLUDE CLAIMS CAUSED OR CLAIMED TO BE CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY THE NEGLIGENCE OF A RELEASED PARTY. I UNDERSTAND THAT IN SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT I, FOR MYSELF OR FOR MY CHILD(REN) SURRENDER THE RIGHT TO MAKE A CLAIM OR FILE A LAWSUIT AGAINST A RELEASED PART FOR PERSONAL INJURY. Any dispute between KDC or another Released Party and me or my child(ren) shall be governed by the laws of Ontario.
