Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Allegro Choirs of Kansas City, Inc. (“Allegro”) has been exploring different and reasonable ways to provide services to all singers. Allegro has reviewed recommendations from national, state, and local authorities, including the CDC and local health department, to draft and implement guidelines moving forward regarding cleaning, screening, social distancing, masking, and similar concerns for singers.
Although Allegro and its staff will work hard to implement and abide by those guidelines, neither the guidelines themselves, nor even guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), would allow Allegro to absolutely guarantee an environment that is entirely free of COVID-19 related risks. The Sing Safely Plan may be adjusted if guidelines and recommendations change (vaccinations, cases increase, etc.)
By allowing your child to participate in Allegro activities, however, you acknowledge and understand that your child’s attendance will require him/her to physically interact with Allegro’s staff members, other singers, and even volunteers. As such, despite reasonable mitigation efforts by Allegro, physical interaction with other singers, the Allegro staff/volunteers, or even the public at large, may pose some unavoidable risks to you, your child, and your family due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With that, you further acknowledge and agree to the following:
1. Waiver and Release. You hereby release and forever discharge and hold harmless Allegro, and its agents or staff, from any and all liability, claims and demands of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, which arise or may hereafter arise from your child’s participation in activities associated with Allegro. You understand that this release discharges Allegro from any liability or claim that you may have against Allegro, with respect to the COVID-19.
2. Assumption of Risk. You further understand that your child’s participation in Allegro may expose him/her and others to unavoidable COVID-19 community spread. As such, you hereby expressly and specifically assume the risk of injury or other harm, and also expressly release Allegro from all liability for injury, illness, or other issue resulting from, or in any way related to your child’s participation.
