WISSAHICKON SKATING CLUB
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization, and is extremely contagious. The virus is believed to spread from person to person contact and/or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects, and possibly in the air. People reportedly can be infected and show no symptoms and therefore unknowingly spread the disease. The exact methods of spread and contraction are unknown, and there is no known treatment, cure, or vaccine for COVID-19. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious potentially life-threatening illness and even death.
Wissahickon Skating Club (“the Club”) cannot prevent you or your child(ren) from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while at the Club or using its premises and facilities. It is not possible to prevent against the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to participate in activities at the Club or utilize the Club’s services, premises, or facilities you may be exposing yourself and your family to COVID-19 and increasing the risk to yourself and your child(ren) of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
