COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. It is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. While rules, guidance, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious illness and death does exist. The Phoenix Theatre Company, despite its reasonable efforts to follow applicable guidelines, cannot completely mitigate the transfer of communicable diseases like COVID-19.  Attending an event at The Phoenix Theatre Company includes possible exposure to COVID-19, and any resulting illness or injury from it.
By attending this event, each guest assumes the risk of personal injury, medical treatment, illness, and/or death that may result.  Furthermore, everyone who attends a performance releases and waives The Phoenix Theatre Company, and the City of Phoenix, and all officers, directors, agents, employees, and representatives of these institutions from any and all liability, causes of action, claims, damages, or other costs arising out of any exposure to or illness or injury from a communicable disease, including COVID-19, which may result from having attended this event.
