ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY
RELATING TO CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19
For the health, safety and well-being of our patrons, staff and artists, Geffen Playhouse’s current COVID-19 policy requires guests to be vaccinated. Upon arrival and prior to entering the building, all guests must present a photo ID (ages 6 - 11 excluded) along with proof that they meet the CDC definition of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, either in the form of a physical vaccination card, a digital vaccination card, or a photo of the card. Guests who are exempt from COVID-19 vaccinations due to medical reasons or sincerely held religious beliefs will be required to take a COVID-19 PCR test within 48 hours or a proctored COVID-19 Rapid Antigen test within 24 hours before entering the building and present their negative results at the door. Masks are currently required for all guests, regardless of vaccination status. At this time and until further notice, children under 6 years of age will not be admitted.
COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather, including theaters. The Geffen Playhouse (the “Theater”), in compliance with guidelines issued by federal, state, and local governments, has put in place preventative measures to avoid the spread of COVID-19 in the Theater. Notwithstanding such preventative safety and screening measures, visiting the Theater could increase your risk of contracting COVID-19 from close contact with potentially infectious patrons, guests and other individuals in the Theater.
By purchasing this ticket and/or accessing the theater, you acknowledge the highly contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that you may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by entering the theater and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and/or death.
You hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the theatre, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from any COVID-19 related injury including, but not limited to, personal injury, illness, disability, and death and any associated damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense of any kind (“claims”). You understand and agree that this release includes any claims based on the negligent acts or omissions of the theater, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 injury occurs before, during, or after your visit to the theater.
I verify all members of my party are age 6 or older. Each member of my party who is fully vaccinated will comply with Geffen Playhouse requirements by presenting proof of vaccinations before entering the theater. I further verify any members of my party who are not fully vaccinated due to medical reasons or sincerely-held religious beliefs will comply with Geffen Playhouse requirements of presenting proof of negative COVID-19 PCR (48 hours) or proctored COVID-19 Rapid Antigen (24 hours) test results before entering the theater. If required at the time of our performance, all members of my party agree to wear appropriate face masks on Geffen Playhouse premises.
