I appreciate the checklist for hosts for Covid-19 that Peerspace has developed, but part of me wonders: Are hosts creating legal liability for themselves by using the checklist?
I am not an attorney, but I’ve drafted some language to include with my checklist, and I’d love to get your feedback:
Paul wants you to have a safe experience and is doing his best to help you, but he is not Dr. Fauci. Please don’t sue him.
The property at 123 Main St is provided on an “as is” basis without warranty of any kind, express or implied. Paul makes no representation about the reduction of risk from Covid-19 or any other disease. Paul disclaims any and all warranties, express or implied, including, without limitation, warranties of the effectiveness of cleaning and disinfecting protocols and the reduction of risk from Covid-19 or any other disease.
What do you guys think? Anything to add/change/delete? Feel free to use this language if you like, though I make no representation or warranties as to the effectiveness of this language to protect you from liability risk. I’m not an attorney! So please don’t sue me.
(Jeesh, we love to sue each other in America, don’t we?)
