Or Torah COVID-19 Minyan Guidelines

Congregation Or Torah Covid Waiver AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY

Please read and sign this Waiver and Release of Liability before registering for minyanim:

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. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited or limited the gathering of groups of people. Congregation Or Torah (“Or Torah”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Or Torah cannot guarantee that I or my family will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending Or Torah events could increase my risk and my family’s risk of contracting COVID-19.

By signing this waiver and release, I assume the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or of contracting COVID-19 as a result of my, or any member of my family’s, attendance at Or Torah events. On my behalf, and on behalf of my entire family, including my children and my spouse, I hereby RELEASE, COVENANT NOT TO SUE AND DISCHARGE Or Torah, its employees, agents, directors, officers and representatives, of and from personal injury, disability, death, illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, related to COVID-19 that I or my family may experience or incur in connection with attendance at Or Torah prayer services or participation in any other Or Torah events (collectively "Claims"). I understand and agree that this waiver and release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Or Torah, its employees, agents, directors, and representatives. Furthermore, in the event that anyone in my family attends an Or Torah event and someone in my family tests positive for COVID-19, I hereby also agree to waive any and all rights that I or my family have related to HIPAA medical privacy and confidentiality in terms of notifying the Or Torah membership of that positive test, to the extent permitted by law.

By signing below, I acknowledge and represent that I have read the foregoing Waiver and Release of Liability, that I understand it, and that I signed it voluntarily as my own free act and deed; I am sufficiently informed about the risks involved in attending Or Torah events to decide whether to sign this document; no oral representations, statements, or inducements, apart from the foregoing written agreement, have been made; I am at least eighteen (18) years of age and fully competent; and I execute this document for full, adequate, and complete consideration fully intending to be bound by the same. I agree that this Wavier and Release of Liability shall be governed by and construed in accordance with Illinois law, and that if any of the provisions hereof are found to be unenforceable, the remainder shall be enforced as fully as possible and the unenforceable provision(s) shall be deemed modified to the limited extent required to permit enforcement of the Waiver and Release of Liability as a whole. Finally, I agree that Or Torah may rely on the validity of this Waiver and Release of Liability as a condition to my attendance of Or Torah events.
