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. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. 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. CrossFit East Orange has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, CrossFit East Orange cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending CrossFit East Orange could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
By visiting CrossFit East Orange I voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending CrossFit East Orange 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 CrossFit East Orange may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, CrossFit East Orange employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with my attendance at the CrossFit East Orange. On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless CrossFit East Orange 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 Club, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any CrossFit East Orange program.

I should look for signs of excessive soreness, darkened urine, and pain in the kidney areas in the days following a particularly intense workout. This type of injury can occur due to a number of factors, including (but not limited to) genetic predisposition or dehydration, that may be beyond the control of my trainer.
