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, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Trapeze School New York™, Trapeze School World Corp., TSNY Chicago L.L.C. ("TSNY") has taken into account local, federal, and international recommendations and put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (posted throughout the facility, and available online here: https://chicago.trapezeschool.com/about/COVID-19_Safety_Procedures); however, due to the nature of our business, TSNY cannot guarantee that individuals will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending TSNY could increase one's risk of contracting COVID-19.
