Furthermore, the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, provincial, and local governments and federal, provincial and local health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. We live in changing times and other contagions may be identified over subsequent months. John Marshall, and/or Family Karate Centres, as well as any staff or employees (“the School”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and/or any other infectious risk; however, the School cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19 and/or any other infectious risk. Further, attending the School could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19 and/or any other infectious risk. By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and/or any other infectious risk and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 and/or any other infectious risk by attending the School and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 and/or any other infectious risk at the School may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, School employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families. I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at the School or participation in School programming (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the School, 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 School, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 and/or any other infectious risk where said infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any School program.
Based on the Ministry of Health from the Government of Ontario and Middlesex-London Health Unit have provided recommendations and directives, and based on these exchanges, we reserve the right to alter the class delivery and/or curriculum content to comply and provide the safest environment possible. Also based on specific recommendations, and for the safety of all involved, only one parent is allowed to stay with a student signed up and attending a Private Lesson, a Little Dragon's class or a White Belt class only - All other classes will be student drop-off only. The student will be checked in at the double doors after entering the vestibule. As reported in the news, PPE/Masks are extremely difficult to obtain at this time throughout the country. As directed by the the Ministry of Health from the Government of Ontario and Middlesex-London Health Unit, all students, visitors and instructors will need to wear a brand-new provided mask at each visit. There will be no initial cover charge for your needed mask during the first two weeks of class. The student, and parent if attending, will be supplied a new mask to wear while on premises. For the safety of all, no reusable masks from home will be permitted. A no-touch temperature reading will be taken when the student arrives by counter staff and they will identify the mat location the student has been assigned for your class. After the initial first two weeks of June, masks may become optional and home use masks may be acceptable. The Health Unit will guide any changes. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate the return to the dojo in the safest manner possible.
