Waiver of Liability Relating: Coronavirus/COVID-19
On March 11, 2020, The World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, a pandemic. COVID-19 is highly contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Howard County Executive Calvin Ball, and the Maryland Department of Health continue to recommend social distancing, encourage limiting the number of individuals in attendance at social gatherings, and require worship services to proceed at no more than the currently prescribed capacity.  Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church (the “Ministry”) thanks you for your service as a paid staff member, unpaid volunteer, and/or attendee at events run by, or held on the property of, the Ministry.  The Ministry has put precautions in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Ministry cannot guarantee that you or your family, including, if applicable, your child(ren), will not become exposed to or infected with COVID-19 while working at or attending Ministry events.  Because of the fact that many infected individuals appear to be asymptomatic, paid staffing, volunteering and/or attending (hereafter referred to as “Participation”) could increase your and, if applicable, your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.

By signing this waiver, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I and, if applicable, my child(ren), may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19.  I agree that the individuals listed on this waiver will comply with all federal, state and local mandates, as well as any directives of Ministry employees relating to social distancing, mask wearing, hygiene, cleaning and disinfection and any required health screenings.  I agree to stay home if anyone below has been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days, is not feeling well or is displaying any symptoms of COVID-19.  I also agree to immediately notify the Ministry if anyone below is diagnosed with COVID-19 within two weeks of Participation with the Ministry. I acknowledge that exposure to or infection by COVID-19 may result in personal injury, illness, disability, and/or death.  I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Ministry employees, contractors, volunteers, members, and participants and their families.

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to myself or, if applicable, my child(ren) (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense of any kind that I or, if applicable, my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my and, if applicable, my child(ren)’s Participation with the Ministry (“Claims”). On my behalf, and, if applicable, on behalf of my child(ren), I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Ministry, its employees, agents, 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 Ministry, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after Participation.
