The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people. Heartbeat International Foundation, Inc. and Sunset Music Presents, LLC (together, “Sunset”) have or will put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, Sunset cannot guarantee that you or anyone will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending the event could increase your risk of contracting COVID-19.
