Medical Release and Waiver
The novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly through person-to-person contact. Grace Church Saint Louis is following guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Missouri State Department of Health and other agencies, and has implemented social distancing measures, increased hand-washing and other hygienic practices, and frequent cleaning of common surfaces. Despite such precautions, the risks associated with transmission of COVID-19 remain. The nature of many activities makes it impossible to observe all of the recommended precautions all of the time; for example, children/students may not always be six feet apart, and surfaces may not always be free of viruses and bacterium.
*Please enter your initials to acknowledge this statement.
I confirm that I will not permit my child to participate in Grace Student activities if, at any time during the program or activity, my child is showing any symptoms of illness including COVID-19 (including but not limited to fever, dry cough, fatigue, shortness of breath, headache, nausea, chills, or muscle pains). Additionally, I confirm that I will not permit my child to participate in a Grace Students event if, at any time within 48 hours leading up to and during the program or activity, my child has been in contact with any individual diagnosed with COVID-19 or any individual currently waiting for test results confirming the possibility of a COVID-19 diagnosis. I agree that in such situations my child will be unable to participate in Grace Students until: (i) 14 calendar days after the symptoms first appeared and my child is no longer showing any symptoms; or (ii) a healthcare provider has confirmed in writing that my child has tested negative for COVID-19 or that my child's symptoms were not due to COVID-19.

The nature of many activities makes it impossible to observe all of the recommended precautions all of the time; for example, children/students may not always be six feet apart, and surfaces may not always be free of viruses and bacterium. As a result of participation in the activities of the ministry and proximity to other participants, myself or my child will be exposed to the RISK of infection of communicable diseases, including COVID-19. I understand that Grace Students cannot prevent the possible transmission or contraction of COVID-19 for my child.
