I acknowledge and understand that my participation, or involvement in any rehearsal or performance of MCF, which includes activities sponsored by or facilitated by MCF, or any activity that I participate in as a result of my being a Singer with MCF, regardless of location, includes the risk of exposing myself to COVID-19, or any similar or related infectious virus, condition or disease (hereinafter collectively referred to as “COVID-19”), due to possible person-to-person transmission through breathing, singing, physical contact, contact with stable surfaces, or other methods of infection or exposure. I fully acknowledge and assume these and other related hazards and risks.


Assumption of Risk: I acknowledge and understand the contagious nature of COVID-19 and I voluntarily assume the risk of being exposed to or infected by COVID-19 through participation in rehearsals and programs as a result of my being a Singer with MCF and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death to me or anyone I may come in contact with.

Release and Waiver of Liability: I understand and acknowledge that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and/or others, including, but not limited to, other Singers, MCF officers, volunteers, invitees, activity participants, and their families, (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Parties”) regardless of location, as a result of my being a Singer with MCF. I hereby forever release, waive, discharge and hold harmless MCF and any of the aforementioned Parties from any and all liability proceedings, actions, causes of action, suits, debts, covenants, contracts, controversies, agreements, promises, variances, damages, judgments, executions, claims, obligations, costs, expenses, losses, exposures, liabilities, duties and demands whatsoever, of every name and nature, in law or equity, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected which I ever had, now have or hereafter can, shall or may have against MCF and any of the aforementioned Parties as a result of my being a Singer with MCF.
