COVID-19 Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver of Liability Agreement:
RELEASE AND WAIVER. In consideration of my child being accepted into the Albuquerque Youth Symphony Program (“AYSP”) and granted access to the AYSP facility, located at 4407 Menaul Blvd. NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87110 (“Facility”), I do hereby forever release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue AYSP, its past, current, and future officers, directors, employees, members, volunteers, contractors, representatives, owners, affiliates, agents, successors, and assigns (“Releasees”) from any and all damages, injuries, losses, liability, claims, causes of action, litigation, or demands, including but not limited to those for personal injury, sickness, or death, as well as property damages and expenses, of any nature whatsoever which may be incurred, directly or indirectly, now or in the future, in any way related to COVID-19 and in connection with my spending time in the Facility. I promise not to sue Releasees for any of the foregoing.
ASSUMPTION OF RISKS. I understand that while AYSP has undertaken reasonable steps to lessen the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in connection on with any activities conducted inside the Facility, Releasees are not responsible in any manner for any risks related to COVID-19 in connection with activities that take place in the Facility. I understand that the World Health Organization has classified the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic. I further understand that COVID-19 is a highly contagious and dangerous disease, and that contact with the virus that causes COVID-19 may result in significant personal injury or death. I am fully aware that participation in activities inside the Facility carries with it certain inherent risks related to COVID-19 transmission (“Inherent Risks”) that cannot be eliminated, regardless of the care taken to avoid such risks. Inherent Risks may include, but are not limited to, (1) the risk of coming into close contact with individuals or objects that may be carrying COVID-19; (2) the risk of transmitting or contracting COVID-19, directly or indirectly, to or from other individuals; and (3) injuries and complications ranging in severity from minor to catastrophic, including death, resulting directly or indirectly from COVID-19 or the treatment thereof. Further, I understand that the risks of COVID-19 are not fully understood, and that contact with, or transmission of, COVID-19 may result in risks including but not limited to loss, personal injury, sickness, death, damage, and expense, the exact nature of which are not currently ascertainable, and all of which are to be considered Inherent Risks. I hereby voluntarily accept and assume all risk of loss, personal injury, sickness, death, damage, and expense arising from such Inherent Risks.
This COVID-19 Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver of Liability Agreement (“Agreement”) shall be binding on my heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns. I expressly agree that this Agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by applicable laws, and that if any portion of this Agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. This Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties relating to the subject matter hereof, and shall not be altered, modified, amended, waived, or supplemented in any manner whatsoever except by a written agreement signed by both parties hereto or their duly authorized representatives. This Agreement may be executed, made and delivered electronically.
