COVID-19 Acknowledgement and Indemnity

COVID-19 Acknowledgement and Indemnity

I/We acknowledge the contagious nature of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and that the CDC and many other public health authorities still recommend practicing social distancing. I/We further acknowledge that St. Thomas Aquinas Tutorial (STAT) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus/COVID-19. I/We further acknowledge that STAT can not guarantee that a faculty/staff member or student will not become infected with the Coronavirus/Covid-19. I/We understand that the risk of becoming exposed to and/or infected by the Coronavirus/COVID-19 may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, board members, tutors, staff, students, and other family members. I/We voluntarily seek services provided by STAT and acknowledge that I/we am/are increasing my/our risk of exposure to the Coronavirus/COVID-19. I/We acknowledge that I/we must comply with all procedures set up by STAT to reduce the spread while at STAT facilities (Our Lady of the Fields in Millersville, MD and Knights of Columbus in Severna Park, MD):

Temperature Checks

  • I/We will take the temperature of all family members each STAT day.
  • If anyone in the household registers a 100 degree temperature, our entire family will stay home from STAT.

Personal Protective Equipment

  • I/We understand that all faculty, staff, and students (age 3+) are required to wear a cloth face mask when indoors and whenever social distancing is not possible outdoors.
  • I/We will ensure that anyone from my/our family who enters the facility will wear a cloth face covering.
  • I/We understand STAT will allow for appropriate alternatives, such as a face shield, if a student or faculty member has a verifiable medical basis for being unable to wear a cloth face covering.
  • I/We understand STAT will provide specific guidelines for when students and staff are permitted to be without a cloth face mask while in the facility, such as during meals.

Drop Off/Pick Procedure

  • I/We will attempt to limit direct contact with other families outside of my/our family or carpool.
  • I/We understand that drivers should stay in the car and only students and faculty/staff will exit/enter the vehicle.
  • I/We will limit parents coming into the facility to a minimum (think emergency or serious situation).
  • I/We will instruct students to go directly from their car to their seat, no congregating.


I/we hereby release and agree to hold STAT harmless from, and waive any and all causes of action, claims, demands, damages, costs, expenses and compensation for damage or loss to anyone from my/our family who enters the STAT facilities or campuses that may be caused by any act, or failure to act by STAT personnel, or that may otherwise arise in any way in connection with any services received from STAT. I/we understand that this release discharges STAT from any liability or claim that I/we, my/our heirs, or any personal representatives may have against STAT with respect to any bodily injury, illness, death, medical treatment, or property damage that may arise from, or in connection to, any services received from STAT. This liability waiver and release extends to STAT together with all board members, partners, and employees.
