Therefore, I understand the known and unknown dangers of participating in ShoreLake Arts' programs due to COVID-19 and acknowledge that any participation of my child(ren) or my ward(s) may, despite ShoreLake Arts' reasonable efforts to mitigate such dangers, result in exposure to or infection by COVID-19, which could result in quarantine requirements, serious illness, disability, and/or death.

 

I hereby agree, represent, and warrant that neither myself nor any participating child(ren) or ward(s) shall visit or participate in ShoreLake Arts' programs if they: (1) are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, including but not limited to, fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, or sore throat; (2) has a suspected or diagnosed/confirmed case of COVID-19; or (3) has knowingly been in close proximity and/or physical contact with anyone who has a suspected or diagnosed/confirmed case of COVID-19.
