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.
Bishoy's Gym (“the Gym”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Gym cannot guarantee that you or your guest(s) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending the Gym could increase your risk and your guest(s)’ risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my guest(s) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending the Gym and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the Gym may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Gym employees and other members of the Gym.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my guest(s) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my guest(s) may experience or incur in connection with our presence in the Gym (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my guest(s), I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Gym, 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. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the Gym, its employees, agents, representatives, or other persons at the Gym, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after any presence at the Gym or participation in any Gym activity.
16. No Supervision.
You acknowledge that you are purchasing a membership at a 24-hour facility that allows access at any time. As such, you understand there will be no supervision or assistance and that there is no regular staffing of Bishoy’s Gym facilities. You acknowledge that you are aware that if you get injured, become unconscious, suffer a stroke or heart attack or any other medical emergency or event, or are the victim of a crime or disaster of any kind, that there will likely be no one to respond to that emergency, and that the Gym Entities have no duty to provide assistance to you. You understand that even though the gym may be equipped with surveillance cameras, help will not be available.
These provisions of this contract are severable and if any provision is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions and any partially enforceable provisions shall nevertheless be enforceable. Bishoy’s Gym’s failure to enforce any remedy or provision in this contract shall not be construed as a waiver of such remedy or provision.
18. Entire Agreement & Enforcement.
This is a fully integrated Agreement. You acknowledge that neither any Gym Entity nor anyone else made any representations or promises upon which you relied that are not stated in this Agreement. This document contains the entire agreement between you and Bishoy’s Gym and replaces any oral or other written agreement. If a court declares any portion of this Agreement to be invalid or unenforceable, it will not invalidate the remaining parts, which continue unaffected. If Bishoy’s Gym does not enforce any right in this Agreement for any reason, Bishoy’s Gym does not waive its right to enforce it later.
19. Modification of Agreement.
This Agreement may only be modified in a writing signed by you and an authorized representative of Bishoy’s Gym. This Agreement is not effective until you and an authorized Bishoy’s Gym representative sign and date it. By signing below, you agree to all the terms on every page of this Agreement.
