Release, Waiver, and Assumption of Risk
I wish to volunteer for TurnOut, a nonprofit corporation that exists under the laws of California (“TurnOut”), to assist the Bay Area community during the COVID-19 crisis.
As a condition for this opportunity to volunteer and to benefit from TurnOut’s resources, volunteer (and parent or legal guardian of volunteer) agrees to this contract.
I understand that volunteering at this time subjects me to dangerous risks, including, but not limited to, coming in contact with persons who may have COVID-19 (also known as the corona virus) and/or contracting COVID-19. I understand that volunteer (and parents) share(s) the responsibility for volunteer’s safety, for managing risks, and for determining volunteer’s suitability for the program in which I will participate. I understand and acknowledge that it is impossible to anticipate every activity in which I (or my child) will engage. I understand that these and other activities I participate in with TurnOut pose known and unknown risks and may cause injury, permanent disability, or death. I agree to assume these risks.
I represent that I am fully capable of participating in this activity, without causing harm to others or myself. Therefore, I, and my parent(s) or guardian, if I am a minor, assume and accept full responsibility for me and for injury, death and loss of personal property and expenses suffered by me and them as a result of those inherent risks and dangers identified herein and those inherent risks and dangers not specifically identified, and as a result of my negligence in participating in this activity.
I represent that I do not currently exhibit, and have not exhibited at any point in the last 48 hours, any of the symptoms of COVID-19, which, pursuant to CDC guidelines, include (but may not be limited to), fever, cough, or shortness of breath. I agree that if I begin to develop any of these symptoms, I will immediately let TurnOut know and will immediately cease all volunteer work.
TurnOut (or its event partner) is not responsible for providing medical treatment for me, but if it does provide any, I release TurnOut (or its event partner) from any claim arising from that treatment. I (and my parent or legal guardian on my behalf) authorize TurnOut (or its event partner) to obtain or provide emergency hospitalization, surgical or other medical care for me as provided in the consent for medical care provided below. I am responsible for my own insurance coverage, and I have no right to expect that TurnOut (or its event partner) will provide insurance for me.
I agree that I will accept and abide by all of TurnOut's rules and regulations and that violating these rules and regulations could place myself in danger of injury or death
I agree that this agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of California and that this agreement will be governed by the laws of that state. If any portion of this agreement is held invalid, a court should revise it to make it enforceable.
I understand that this is the entire agreement between TurnOut and me, and that the agreement cannot be modified or changed in any way by any other representation or statement.
I HAVE CAREFULLY READ, UNDERSTAND, AND VOLUNTARILY SIGN THIS DOCUMENT. IN SIGNING THIS DOCUMENT, I FULLY RECOGNIZE THAT IF I BECOME SICK WHILE I VOLUNTEER WITH TURNOUT, I WILL HAVE NO RIGHT TO MAKE A CLAIM, FILE A LAWSUIT, OR COLLECT DAMAGES AGAINST TURNOUT, ITS AFFILIATES, OR ITS EVENT PARTNER, EVEN IF THEY NEGLIGENTLY CAUSED THE BODILY INJURY. I HEREBY WARRANT THAT I HAVE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO ACT ON MY CHILD’S BEHALF. I AGREE, ON MY OWN AND MY CHILD’S BEHALF, TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN THIS DOCUMENT.
I have read this agreement, I completely understand it, and I agree to be bound by it.
