ASSUMPTION OF RISK, RELEASE, AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY AGREEMENT
In consideration of my requesting that I be permitted to share a room for lodging purposes at the Antiochian Village Conference and Retreat Center in Bolivar, PA (hereinafter referred to as the "Center"), I being 18 years of age or older, do hereby forever release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue the Center and its past, current and future officers, directors, employees, members, volunteers, contractors, representatives, parents, owners, affiliates, agents, successors and assigns from any and all damages, injuries, losses, liability, claims, cause of action, litigation, or demands, including but not limited to those for personal injury, sickness, or death, as well as property damages and expenses, of any nature whatsoever which may be incurred, directly or indirectly, now or in the future, in any way related to COVID-19 and in connection with my sharing of lodging.
ASSUMPTION OF RISKS. I understand that while the Center has undertaken reasonable steps to lessen the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in connection with the Center, the Center is not responsible in any manner for any risks related to COVID-19 in connection with my sharing of lodging and/or participation in events at the Center. I understand that the World Health Organization has classified the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic. I further understand that COVID-19 is a highly contagious and dangerous disease and that contact with the virus that causes COVID-19 may result in significant personal injury or death. I am fully aware that attendance at the Center carries with it certain inherent risks related to COVID-19 transmission ("Inherent Risks") that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid such risks. Inherent Risks may include, but are not limited to, (1) the risk of coming into close contact with individuals or objects that may be carrying COVID-19; (2) the risk of transmitting or contracting COVD-19, directly or indirectly, to or from other individuals; and (3) injuries and complications ranging in severity from minor to catastrophic, including death, resulting directly or indirectly from COVID-19 or the treatment thereof. Further, I understand that the risks of COVID-19 are not fully understood, and that contact with, or transmission of, COVID-19 may result in risks including but not limited to loss, personal injury, sickness, death, damage, and expense, the exact nature of which are not currently ascertainable, and all of which are to be considered Inherent Risks. Furthermore, I represent and warrant that I do not suffer from COVID-19.
The COVID-19 Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver of Liability Agreement (“Agreement") shall be binding on my heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns. I expressly agree that this Agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by applicable laws and that if any portion of this Agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. This Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties relating to the subject matter, and shall not be altered, modified, amended, waived, or supplemented in any manner whatsoever except by a written agreement signed by both parties hereto or their duly authorized representatives. This Agreement may be executed, made, and delivered electronically.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, I (a) covenant and agree not to elect a trial by jury with respect to any issue arising out of this Agreement that is triable or right by a jury, and (b) waive any right to trial by jury with respect to such issue to the extent that any such right exists now or in the future. This waiver of right to trial by jury is given knowingly and voluntarily.
I have read and understand this Agreement and enter into it voluntarily in consideration of the opportunity to attend events at the Center and share lodging. I acknowledge I am giving up legal rights and/or remedies which may be available to me.
