Participant understands the novel corona-virus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread 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. NUE has put in place preventative measures and protocols to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, we cannot guarantee that Participant or Legal Guardian will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending any in-person NUE offering, could increase Participant's or Legal Guardian's risk of contracting COVID-19. By acknowledging this agreement, Participant acknowledges the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assumes the risk that Participant and Legal Guardian may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending NUE, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. Participant understands that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at NUE may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, NUE employees, program participants, and their families. Participant voluntarily agrees to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to Participant of Legal Guardian (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that Participant or Legal Guardian may experience or incur in connection with Participant’s attendance at NUE. Participant hereby releases, covenants not to sue, discharges, and hold harmless NUE, its employees, representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto. Participant understands and agrees that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of NUE, its employees, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any NUE program.
