Public Program Waiver

Thank you for participating in programming with The Gardens on Spring Creek.
Please take a few minutes to read through the following information before signing at the end.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact.

On March 10, 2020, the Governor of Colorado declared a state of emergency in response to COVID-19, which remains in effect. On March 13, 2020, the City Manager of the City of Fort Collins (City) proclaimed a local emergency in response to COVID-19, which proclamation was approved by  the Fort Collins City Council and remains in effect.

On April 26, 2020, Colorado’s Governor enacted Executive Order D 2020-44 and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) enacted Public Health Order 20-28, which Order 20-28 has since been amended (Safer at Home Order).  As authorized in the Safer at Home Order, the City is resuming Programming at The Gardens on Spring Creek with appropriate modifications to comply with the Safer-at-Home Order and other applicable orders from the Governor and CDPHE.

However, even if Programming at The Gardens on Spring Creek is operated in compliance with all applicable orders, you, your child(ren) and other family members may still become infected with COVID-19 arising from participation in this program by you and your child(ren). Further, attending the Programming at The Gardens on Spring Creek will likely increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19. Also, such participation could increase for those members of your family who are “Vulnerable Individuals,” as defined by the Safer-at-Home Order, the risk of serious illness, injury or death from contracting COVID-19.


By signing this Release and Waiver, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending Programming at the Gardens on Spring Creek 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 Gardens on Spring Creek may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, City employees, officials, volunteers, and program participants and their families.

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at, or participation in, Programming at The Gardens on Spring Creek (Claims).

I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the City and its employees, officials, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, causes of action, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this Release and Waiver applies to any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the City, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any City program or activity, including Programming at The Gardens on Spring Creek. I also agree to follow all posted instructions and verbal instruction by City staff while attending Programming at The Gardens on Spring Creek.
