Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is reported to be extremely contagious. The state of medical knowledge is evolving, but the virus is believed to spread from person-to-person contact and/or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects and through the air. 

People reportedly can be infected and show no symptoms and therefore spread the disease. The exact methods of spread and contraction are unknown, and there is no known treatment or cure for COVID-19. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life threatening illness and even death. 

Parents Time Out cannot prevent you from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while participating in
