Participation disclaimer

Although NVRC has implemented COVID-19 related health and safety measures, COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease, and there is an inherent risk of exposure in any place where people are gathered in groups of any size, and this risk cannot be eliminated.  Notwithstanding NVRC’s COVID-19 related health and safety measures, by visiting a NVRC facility or participating in any NVRC program, participants accept the risk that they may be exposed to, and contract COVID-19.
