COVID-19 Risk and Waiver of Liability, Updated 09/23/2020

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. ISP Event Center (“ISP”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, ISP cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending ISP events could increase your risk and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.

 

By accepting this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending ISP events and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at an ISP event may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, ISP employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families.

 

 I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s participation in ISP programming (“Claims”). On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless ISP, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of ISP, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any ISP program.

 

 I/WE HAVE READ THIS ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY RELATING TO CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, UNDERSTAND THAT I/WE HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY AGREEING TO IT AND AGREE TO IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT.

Who will be participating?
