IN CONSIDERATION OF CLIENT BEING PERMITTED to use Cat Nap Hangout and Adoptions facilities and equipment, as well as interact with the animals and subject to the limitations set forth under California law, the Client hereby freely and willfully executes this Release under the following terms. 1.

Cat Nap Hangout and Adoptions ( Alfies Kitten Rescue) strongly advises the Client to visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html for information about COVID-19. COVID-19 may cause severe illness and even death. California has community spread of COVID-19. COVID-19 is a viral illness that spreads from person to person via various methods, including but not limited to touch and airborne particles. Symptoms can range from mild (or no symptoms) to severe illness. A person can become infected by coming into close contact (about 6 feet) with someone who has COVID-19. A person may become infected from respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
A person can become infected by coming into close contact (about 6 feet) with someone who has COVID-19. A person may become infected from respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. A person may also become infected by touching a surface or object with the virus on it, and then touching the person’s face. The best protection is to avoid being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (“CDC”) COVID- 19 Guidance suggests, in relevant part: (a) staying home as much as possible and avoiding close contact with others; (b) wearing a cloth face covering over your nose and mouth in public settings;
(c) cleaning and disinfecting frequently-touched surfaces; (d) washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol; (e) completing activities online as much as possible (rather than in person); (f) if you must go somewhere in person, staying at least 6 feet away from others and disinfecting items you must touch; (g) getting deliveries and takeout and limiting in-person contact as much as possible; and (h) staying home if you are sick, except to get medical care
Everyone is at risk of getting COVID-19. Older adults and people with serious underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk for more severe illness. Cat Nap and Adoptions has made the Client aware of the risk of contracting COVID-19. The Client understands that if the Client uses Facilities, they may contract COVID-19, despite Cat Nap Hangout and Adoptions ( Alfies Kitten Rescue) following all of the CDC guidelines around Covid. The Client will review the CDC’s Guidance and website and the Los Angeles County Department of Health’s website and guidance regarding COVID-19, available at https:www.ph.lacounty.gov/media/coronovirus/, before using any Facilities. The Client has reviewed those sources and is willing to accept the risk of contracting COVID-19 in using any Facilities. The Client uses any Facilities at the Client’s own, sole risk.
3. Assumption of Risks. The Client is fully aware that the animals, even though seemingly domesticated may be dangerous. I understand there are unique risks and inherent dangers associated with coming into contact with such animals and the Client runs the risk of personal injury or even death. The Client also realizes cats may transmit diseases to them merely by my coming into contact with them. Despite the unique risks and inherent dangers associated with coming into contact with these animals, the Client freely accepts and fully assumes any and all risks, dangers and hazards that may occur including, but not limited to, personal injury, illness, death, property damage or loss, whether caused in whole or in part by the ordinary negligence (active or passive) or conduct (intentional or unintentional) of Cat Nap Hangout and Adoptions.
