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. Voices In Praise, Inc. (VIP Inc.) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, VIP Inc. cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19.
VIP Inc. requests that singers, volunteers, and staff:
- Wear a mask at all times.
- Only attend rehearsals and activities if you are healthy.
- Maintain a six foot or more distance from other participants.
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending VIP rehearsals or activities. I acknowledge that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death.

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) 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 child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance and participation in VIP programming (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless VIP Inc., 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.
