SPECIAL LIMITATION OF LIABILITY DURING THE CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Teeny and its Experience Hosts recognize the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and, as a result, have instituted preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Teeny cannot guarantee that you, your family, or your guests will not become infected with COVID-19. It is possible that attending events, and/or activities booked through Teeny may place you in close physical contact with other attendees and staff and could increase the risk that you, your family members, and/or your guests contract COVID-19. You hereby acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that you, your family members and/or your guests may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at an event that you have booked through Teeny and that such exposure or infection could result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and/or death. You understand the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at an event you attend that you have booked through Teeny may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of yourself or others, including, but not limited to, Teeny hosts, employees, and attendees.
You also expressly agree that Teeny is not obligated to conduct temperature checks to those seeking admittance to its hosts facilities and, further, should it implement temperature checks, Teeny is not undertaking a duty to continue temperature checks for any length of time. If temperature checks are conducted you expressly agree to allow hosts of Teeny to deny you admittance to its facilities if you either refuse to have your temperature taken or after having your temperature taken test positive for a fever. Also, if any Teeny Experience Host believes you are ill for any reason you agree that in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 (and other diseases) they may ask you to leave, remove you from the premises and deny admittance to Teeny host facilities.
Furthermore, you also agree that should the State of Illinois, the County of Cook or the City of Chicago request information from Teeny or their hosts as part of a contact tracing program designed to trace the infection of COVID-19, you expressly authorize Teeny to provide whatever information in its possession relating to you for such a purpose.
