COVID-19 LIABILITY AND WAIVER

It is the policy of the Flint Institute of Music’s (FIM), that for the safety of its staff and patrons, masks are required to be worn when entering a building for business or for sponsored or managed events and performances (Includes Flint Symphony Orchestra, Flint School of Performing Arts, Flint Repertory Theatre, MacArthur Recital Hall, Whiting Auditorium, Capitol Theatre). However, attendance may increase your risk of contracting an illness such as COVID-19. As such, your attendance is an acknowledgment of that risk and an agreement
to release FIM or FCCC of any liability should you or anyone in your party be diagnosed with an illness. Please remember that masks are a legal requirement and must be worn. Please do not attend the event should you be or have recently been sick.
