The World Health Organization has declared the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) a worldwide pandemic. COVID-19 is reported to be extremely contagious. The state of medical knowledge is evolving, but the virus is believed to spread from person-to-person contact and/or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects, and even possibly in the air. People reportedly can be infected and show no symptoms and therefore spread the disease. The exact methods of spread and contraction are unknown, and there is no known treatment, cure, or vaccine for COVID-19. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness and even death. Due to its capacity to transmit from person-to-person through respiratory droplets, the government has set recommendations, guidelines, and some prohibitions which Global Awakening ("Global") adheres to comply.
Global cannot prevent you or your children from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while attending Global’s services or events. It is not possible to prevent against the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to attend Global’s services and/or enter onto conference/event premises you may be exposing yourself to and/or increasing your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.

I agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Global from and against any and all costs, expenses, damages, lawsuits, and/or liabilities or claims arising whether directly or indirectly from or related to any and all claims made by or against any of the released party due to injury, loss, or death from or related to COVID-19.
