COVID – 19 COVID-19 is a contagious disease (“COVID”). We care about you, your family, our employees and the public. We strive to obey the law and follow COVID guidelines and implement all risk mitigation measures. However there are significant health risks and high risk of transmission through physical or shared contact. COVID-19 is novel and, because it can be transmitted through physical or shared contact with another person, the risk of contraction from engaging in sport activities may be foreseeable.
ASSUMPTION OF RISKS
I am aware that the activities at the BGCL/ILC/ILT programs involve risks and dangers that may cause serious injury and even death, and loss or damage to personal property. These risks are inherent in the activities and cannot be eliminated without altering their character and value. The risks include, among others, the following: contracting COVID; moving about the ILC/ILT premises; negligence on the part of myself and/or other participants; negligence of the BGCL/ILC/ILT and its staff, including the improper use of equipment; the breakage and failure of equipment and structures; over exertion, together with other risks which may be encountered and NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES, INCLUDING THE FAILURE ON THE PART OF THE RELEASEES TO SAFEGUARD OR PROTECT ME FROM THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS REFERRED TO ABOVE.
The BGCL/ILC/ILT programs are designed for use by participants of average strength, mobility and fitness who are in good health. Several medical conditions, including but not limited to obesity, high blood pressure, cardiac and coronary artery disease, pulmonary problems, arthritis, tendonitis, or joint and muscular-skeletal problems may impair the safety and well being of participants as may other medical, physical, psychological or psychiatric problems. All such medical conditions may increase the risk of participating in the programs and cause the participant to be a danger to themselves or others. Participants with underlying medical, physical, psychological or psychiatric conditions must evaluate their condition and their ability before choosing to participate in the programs. All participants must inform BGCL/ILC/ILT in writing of any such medical, physical, psychological or psychiatric conditions before participating in any programs. The Releasees reserve the right to prevent any person, for medical or safety reasons, from participating in the programs at any time.
I AM AWARE OF THE RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH MY USE OF THE BGCL/ILC/ILT PROGRAMS AND I FREELY ACCEPT AND FULLY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, DANGERS AND HAZARDS AND THE POSSIBILITY OF PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE AND LOSS RESULTING THEREFROM.
