Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is reported to be extremely contagious. The state of medical knowledge is evolving, but the virus is believed to spread from person-to-person contact and by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects. It is possible that it is capable of airborne transmission independent of droplet transmission. Reports suggest that many people may be asymptomatic, but still capable of transmitting the disease. The exact means of spread and contraction are unknown. There is no known treatment, cure, or vaccine for COVID-19. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness and even death.
