Covid 19 Risk Acceptance

I understand that I am opting to participate in a lesson or activity for watersports. I accept there maybe an element of risk involved both from an activity perspective and from covid 19. As a student I accept to follow the guidance the instructor issues at all times (this will keep everyone safe whilst learning) I also accept to follow the following processes properly and answer honestly to the best of my knowledge in relation to COVID 19.

I understand that the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization and that COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread by person-to-person contact; and, as a result, social distancing is recommended. This is not entirely possible during some forms of watersports tuition, which may for brief moments require a breach of this distance for necessary manoeuvres. However, I am satisfied that safety measures are in place to minimise risk as much as possible, and student/instructor contact will be kept to an absolute minimum in line with the lessons need.

I understand the school management and staff are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and have put in place reasonable preventative measures aimed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, given the nature of the virus, I understand there is an inherent risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 by virtue of proceeding with a lesson or activity. I hereby acknowledge and assume the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 through this elective lesson/activity, and I give my express permission to proceed.

I understand the COVID-19 virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not
show symptoms and still be highly contagious. I understand that COVID-19 can cause additional health risks,
some of which may not currently be known at this time, in addition to those risks associated with the activity

I confirm that I am not presenting with any of the following symptoms associated with COVID-19 listed below: Fever, Shortness of Breath, Loss of Sense of Taste or Smell, Dry Cough, Runny Nose, Sore Throat.

I understand that air travel significantly increases my risk of contracting and transmitting the COVID-19
virus. I confirm that I have not travelled from another country by air in the past 14 days.

I confirm that if I develop COVID-19 symptoms following my lesson, or a known contact of mine develops symptoms, I will immediately inform the relevant school and instructor to enable appropriate measures to be put in place and contact tracing to commence.

I also understand that The Hoxton Special is an open space and that we do not enforce mask wearing during our activities. We have made sure that we meet all of the government guidelines to protect ourselves and others whilst you spend time with us. However if you require extra precautions, please get in touch with us before you arrive and we will do our best to accommodate you and your party.
