Covid-19 Waiver and Release Form
I am a voluntary participant for a photography event to occur with Miranda Lattimore and All the Colors Photography.
The novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly via person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments as well as federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Miranda Lattimore and All the Colors Photography has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Miranda Lattimore and All the Colors Photography cannot guarantee that you or your family will not become infected with COVID-19.
I understand the novel coronavirus causes the disease known as COVID-19. I understand the novel coronavirus virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be contagious.
