Health & Safety Commitment

Our nation and our planet are experiencing a health crisis not seen in over a century. The direct toll on humanity from loss of life due to COVID-19, and indirectly due to economic and other factors, will be felt for years to come. It will require a concerted effort and commitment to personal responsibility by every person to stop the spread of coronavirus and mitigate its devastating impact.

In voluntarily participating in the use of the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA and North Central Recreation Center (“NCRC”), on behalf of myself, and on behalf of my minor children, using the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC facilities and the ice sheet, I understand and accept that such use by me or my minor children is conditioned upon agreeing to abide by a set of guidelines designed for the personal and collective health and safety of myself, my minor children and all those who are included in this use.

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures for you, your minor children, our other guests and our staff. You and your minor children must follow all posted instructions while visiting the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and even death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), senior citizens and patrons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC, you, for yourself and on behalf of your minor children, voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. Please help keep each other healthy.

In light of the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), I have read the special mandatory health guidelines created for the use of the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC, based upon the guidance of the CDC, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Cambria County, Pennsylvania and other appropriate governmental agencies. I understand these rules and pledge to abide by them at all times throughout my visitation to the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/ NCRC, both inside the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC, in the parking areas surrounding the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC, and including any travel to and from the activities occurring within the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC.

The rules, as detailed in the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC COVID-19 Health and Safety program, include:

• Complying with all 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC-communicated guidelines. • Bringing and wearing a facemask at all times except when skating on the ice. • Avoiding touching my eyes, nose and mouth. • Practicing social distancing, with my peer group as possible and always with others. • Staying with my assigned functional peer group and not mixing with other groups, neither inside nor outside the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC, including while traveling to and from the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC. • Practicing sanitary behavior including washing my hands thoroughly throughout the day, including upon entering the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC, before and after ice time usage, and before departure. • Regularly utilizing sanitizing stations. • Voluntarily isolating myself between ice time usages. • Immediately reporting to 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC designated staff, before and after entering the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC, any symptoms of illness, including sore throat, cough, fever, chills, and shortness of breath. Further committing to not participating and/or immediately removing myself and/or my similarly affected minor children, from participation if I or they experience any of these symptoms. • Committing not to put myself or my minor children in harm’s way.

By signing this document, I confirm my, or my minor children’s, voluntary participation in the activities taking place in the 1ST SUMMIT ARENA/NCRC, including, but not limited to, ice time usage, whether organized or unorganized, and agree to all rules and health protocols provided to me, in order to maintain the safety and health of myself and others.
