By requesting and accepting the referral services of Nanny Posse, LLC, you are agreeing to our COVID-19 policy and waiver.

Coronavirus/COVID-19 Policy and Waiver of Liability & Release Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious. The state of medical knowledge is evolving but the virus is believed to spread from person-to-person contact and/or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects, and even possibly in the air. People reportedly can be infected and show no symptoms and therefore spread the disease. The exact methods of spread and contraction are unknown, and there is no known treatment, cure, or vaccine for COVID-19. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life threatening illness and even death, no matter a person’s age or gender.

Nanny Posse, LLC cannot prevent you or your child(ren) from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while utilizing Nanny Posse referral services. While Nanny Posse does ask potential babysitters  if they have experienced symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, cough or shortness of breath, and tells babysitters that they must not go on a sit if within the last fourteen (14) days they have or are suspected of having or have shown any symptoms or have been exposed to anyone known to have or suspected of having the virus or to have been in locations subject to a CDC Level 3 Travel Health Notice (available at https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices) (and, if so, whether they have been self-quarantining for at least fourteen (14) days), babysitters may not know if they have symptoms, may be asymptomatic carriers of the virus, and may not know that someone to whom they have been exposed has the virus. Therefore, for these and the reasons stated above, it is not possible to prevent against the presence of the disease.

Nanny Posse, LLC also endeavors to reduce the chances of babysitters’ being exposed to the virus and to that end if you request a referral, you are representing on behalf of yourself and your family members that neither you nor other family members have, within the fourteen (14) days before the requested date(s) of service, returned from or to your knowledge have been exposed to a person who has been in locations subject to a CDC Level 3 Travel Health Notice or to your knowledge have been exposed to any person who has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, and that none of the above, including you and your family members, has shown or experienced symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, cough, or shortness of breath, or other known symptoms of COVID-19.

Assumption of Risk: By requesting Nanny Posse to refer a sitter to you, you agree on behalf of yourself and your family, including your child(ren), that you have read and understood the above warning concerning COVID-19 and that you choose to accept the risk of contracting COVID-19 for yourself and your family, including your child(ren) in order to utilize Nanny Posse, LLC’s babysitter referral services. You are representing that these services are of such value to you, your family, and your child(ren) that you accept the risk of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 in order to utilize the services of Nanny Posse.

Unless the answer to each of the above is “no” for at least fourteen (14) days before the date of the sit, Nanny Posse will not refer a sitter.

Sitters who are referred by Nanny Posse are also asked the above questions and the answers must also be “no” for at least fourteen (14) days before the date of the sit or the sitter may not go on the sit.

Nanny Posse also tells each referred sitter to social distance whenever possible (by maintaining at least six (6) feet of distance between the sitter and others) and to have the children social distance when around other people, to avoid touching public surfaces (including, as an example only, elevator buttons), to wash the sitters’ hands for at least twenty (20) seconds with soap after touching surfaces and the like, and as soon as the sitter first enters the home or babysitting area and before touching the children or surfaces in their home or babysitting area), and to avoid touching others as much as possible (including by not shaking hands with the parents or other adults). Sitters are also told to bring hand sanitizer containing at least 70% alcohol on the sit (though the sitter will try first to hand wash–it is most effective) and that hand sanitizer should never be ingested; and to wear a mask when possible while on the sit.

 

Nanny Posse requires family to have antibacterial soap in the kitchen and bathrooms that the sitter has access to; to provide hand sanitizer that the sitter can take on outings with the child(ren); to provide Lysol or similar antibacterial cleaning products to use on the sit; and to provide masks for the child(ren) of an appropriate age if required to interact with individuals outside of the child(ren)’s immediate family.

NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING HEREIN TO THE CONTRARY, THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF NANNY POSSE TO YOU WILL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION. IN THE EVENT APPLICABLE LAW DOES NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, NANNY POSSE’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
