The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is reported to be extremely contagious. The state of medical knowledge is evolving, but the virus is believed to spread from person-to-person contact and/or by contact with contaminated surfaces and objects, and even possibly in the air. People reportedly can be infected and show no symptoms and therefore spread the disease. The exact methods of spread and contraction are unknown, and there is no known cure or vaccine for COVID-19. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness and even death.
ASBO International, their affiliated entities, and Belmond Charleston Place cannot prevent you from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while attending its conferences and/or entering onto premises where ASBO International events are held. It is not possible to prevent against the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to attend a conference organized by ASBO International and enter onto premises where its conferences are held, you may be exposing yourself to and/or increasing your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK: I have read and understood the above warning concerning COVID-19. I hereby choose to accept the risk of contracting COVID-19 for myself in order to attend an ASBO International conference and enter the conference premises. The conference is of such value to me that I accept the risk of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 in order to attend in person.
WAIVER OF LAWSUIT/LIABILITY: I hereby forever release and waive my right to bring suit against ASBO International and its owners, officers, directors, managers, officials, trustees, agents, employees, or other representatives for fault in connection with exposure, infection, and/or spread of COVID-19 related to attending its event. I understand that this waiver means I give up my right to bring any claim based in negligence, including for personal injuries, death, disease or property losses, or any other loss, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen.
CHOICE OF LAW: I understand and agree that the law of the State of South Carolina will apply to this contract.
I HAVE CAREFULLY READ AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ALL PROVISIONS OF THIS RELEASE, AND FREELY AND KNOWINGLY ASSUME THE RISK AND WAIVE MY RIGHTS CONCERNING LIABILITY AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.
