GUARDIANS agree that said minor will be under the control and authority of such BYC Officers, staff and Directors, and that such Officers, staff and Directors may exercise parental supervision over the child. This constitutes an assignment of temporary guardianship, and Directors may exercise control and make all decisions thereunto pertaining. GUARDIANS further agree that they will, at all times, hereafter indemnify and save harmless BYC and its Officers, Directors, staff, parents, members and volunteers, both individually and in their capacity as such Officers, Directors, staff, parents, members and volunteers, and/or any other organization under whose auspices or in whose premises the minor may rehearse or perform and/or individual and/or organization providing transportation for said minor, from and against all claims, suits, damages, costs, losses, and expenses in any manner resulting from or arising out of said minor’s participation in such rehearsals, performances, and/or tours. It is understood that any medical, hospital, and surgical expenses, incurred as a result of treatment recommended, shall be borne by such GUARDIANS and, to the extent that such expenses may first be paid by BYC, GUARDIANS agree to reimburse it for such expenditures. GUARDIANS acknowledge that participating in BYC rehearsals, activities, performances and other events may include a possible exposure to a communicable disease including but not limited to MRSA, influenza, and COVID-19. GUARDIANS further acknowledge that they are aware of the risks associated with COVID-19 and that certain vulnerable individuals may have greater health risks associated with exposure to COVID-19. While particular recommendations and personal discipline may reduce the risks associated with participating in athletics during the COVID-19 pandemic, the risk of serious illness, medical complications, and possible death does exist. GUARDIANS knowingly and freely assume all such risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from the negligence of others, and assume full responsibility for Student’s participation in BYC rehearsals, activities, performances and other events during the COVID-19 pandemic. GUARDIANS willingly agree to comply with the stated recommendations put forth by the Berks Youth Chorus to limit the exposure and spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. We certify that the minor child is in good physical condition or believe the minor child to be in good physical condition and allow participation in these events at our own risk. In consideration of the amount of time spent in rehearsals, performances, and/or tours, GUARDIANS also agree that emergency medical, including surgical treatments, may be authorized by said Officers, Directors and staff on GUARDIANS’ behalf when he/she cannot be immediately contacted. This agreement shall be binding upon my/our heirs, successors, administrators and assigns. By printing the Guardian's name above, the Guardian signs this binding agreement.
