We are in the midst of a dangerous pandemic, but the Park is open.
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a Worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. As used herein, ” “COVID-19” means: the “SARS-CoV-2 virus, including all variants and mutations such as the B.1.1.7, B.1.351 and P.1.” On March 13, 2020, the President of the United States declared COVID-19 a national emergency. The United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) publishes and revises a COVID-19 Overview document and guidance on the CDC.gov website. Florida’s Governor has declared COVID-19 to constitute a public health emergency and has issued a series of Executive Orders regarding that emergency.
On July 21, 2020, Florida’s Surgeon General and Public Health Official issued an updated and supplemental public health advisory regarding the COVID-19 pandemic in Florida. Gatherings of ten or more people are discouraged. COVID-19 is reported to be extremely contagious.
While the state of medical knowledge of COVID-19 is evolving, the virus is believed to spread from person-to-person contact and/or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects, and by airborne spread. People reportedly can be infected and be contagious while showing no symptoms. The exact methods of spread and contraction are unknown with any certainty and there is no known treatment, cure or 100% effective vaccine for COVID-19. COVID-19 can be fatal and can lead to serious illness and/or permanent disability in persons who contract it.
The documented risk of adverse health outcomes, including hospitalization and death, for COVID-19 increases with age: senior citizens are far more likely to experience severe symptoms and death than are young people. In addition, people of all ages with certain medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness and death. Such documented conditions include: cancer, chronic kidney disease, COPD, Down Syndrome, heart conditions, immunocompromised state, obesity (BMI of 30 kg.m2 or higher), sever obesity, pregnancy, Sickle cell disease, addiction to tobacco (smoking), and Type 2 diabetes mellitus. There are also a number of health conditions that may cause one to be at increased risk, including but not limited to: asthma, hypertension, etc.
We cannot guarantee your safety from the Virus.
Cornett’s Spirit of the Suwannee, Inc. cannot prevent you from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while you are at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park or purchase goods or services. It is simply not possible to prevent against the presence of the virus. Therefore, if you choose to visit the Park or patronize goods or services there you may be exposing yourself to COVID-19 and increasing your risk of contracting it, or spreading it to others.
Please do not visit the Park if you have Covid-19 symptoms or are infected.
