The novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is 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.
Berkeley County School District (the “District”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the District cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending and/or participating in any school-related activity within the District’s schools could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, you acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that your child(ren) and you may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending and/or participating in sports-related activities in connection with the District’s schools and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death.
