Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID-19 the novel coronavirus and related variants (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. I understand and recognize that preventative measures have been put in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, I may become infected with COVID-19. Further, my attending events could increase my risk of contracting COVID-19.

By purchasing and/or using a ticket, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and I voluntarily assume the risk of being exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending events and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and/or death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the event may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of ticket holders and others, including, but not limited to, 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 attendance at the event or participation in concert programming (“Claims”).

On my own behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless the Elgin Community College, 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 the Elgin Community College, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any event program.
