COVID-19 RETURN TO DANCING CONSENT FORM
Assumption of the Risk to Coronavirus/COVID-19
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organisation.
COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to person contact. As a result, the Australian Government and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) have provided Dance Desires with clear guidelines and preventative measures which we have put into place to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Whilst we pledge to follow every precaution necessary to provide a safe and healthy environment for our students to return to dancing, Dance Desires cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19 whilst attending our facilities or taking part in events related to our dance studio.
By accepting this agreement, you acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that your child(ren) and yourself may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending dance classes and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. You understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the Dance Studio may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of others, including, but not limited to Teaching Staff.
You also confirm that you will not allow your child(ren) to attend classes at Dance Desires if they are presenting any of the following symptoms of COVID-19 listed here, or if anyone within your family home is presenting with any of these symptoms: Fever, Shortness of Breath, Loss of Sense of Taste or Smell, Dry Cough, Runny Nose, Sore Throat
