COVID Policy

I, wishing to either volunteer my time and services for Markeim Arts Center, or to attend or participate in any of the organization’s events or programs, hereby acknowledge that said organization is doing everything they can to protect the public as well as myself. To this extent, I agree to follow Center of Disease Control (CDC) and local health district guidelines and Markeim Arts Center’s policies and procedures for social distancing to reduce the spread of Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19. This will require me to maintain six (6) feet of distance between myself, volunteers, and patrons of the organization as much as possible. This procedure will be required for both indoor and outdoor activities.

I agree to utilize a mask to reduce the risk of exposure to myself and others. I agree to wash or sanitize my hands after using the restroom, sneezing, and coughing and before interacting with any shared supplies.

I understand that there is no direct or indirect medical health coverage afforded to me by The Markeim Arts Center. Markeim Arts Center is not responsible for any potential exposure to Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19, which is not a direct result of gross negligence on the part of its employees, volunteers, or the organization.

By signing below, I agree to comply with the written instructions above. Failure to comply with these written instructions or verbal instructions from staff may result in my volunteer, participation, or attendance privileges being revoked and I may be asked to leave the premises.

By signing below, I understand and expressly acknowledge that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By participating in or attending any of Markeim’s events, I, whether as a volunteer, student, guest or otherwise, voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and waive, release, and discharge Markeim Arts Center; the host venue; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers from any and all liability under any theory, whether in negligence or otherwise, for any such illness or injury.
