Assumption of the Risk and 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 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.
As of May 6, 2020, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock issued a public health order requiring Denver residents to wear face masks in certain public settings. Residents and employees will be required to wear face coverings while inside of, or waiting in line to enter, certain businesses, facilities or locations, such as retail stores, bus stops or health care facilities.
The Denver order defines a face covering as a cloth, fabric or other soft permeable material that covers the nose and mouth. Mask can be made at home from household materials or purchased. Medical-grade masks such as surgical and N95 masks should be reserved for health care workers and first responders.

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my myself or children (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child (children) may experience or incur in connection with me entering the building or surrounding grounds. On my behalf, and on behalf of my children (if applicable), I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Company, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto.
