As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited or limited the congregation of groups of people.
Users expressly acknowledge that DYA and the City of Dublin (both hereby defined to include all employees, managers, agents, elected officials, volunteers, representatives, and their insurers) cannot guarantee that User will not become infected with any Naturally Occurring Disease, including COVID-19 through participation in DYA sponsored events/activities or through the use of City facilities. Further, Users understand that participating in DYA events/activities and using City facilities could increase the risk of contracting a Naturally Occurring Disease.
