The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from symptomatic people to others who are in close contact through respiratory droplets, by direct contact with infected persons, or by contact with contaminated objects and surfaces. As a result, federal, provincial, and local governments and federal and provincial health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.
Metamorephiit Fitness Society ("the Society") has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Society cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending the Society’s activities and events could increase your risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending the Society’s activities and events and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the Society’s activities and events may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Society Directors, volunteers, and program participants and their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with my attendance at the Society‘s activities and events. I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Society, its volunteers, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the Society, its Directors, volunteers, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Society activity or event.
