COVID-19 SAFETY INFORMATION
COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact. The National Apartment Association (“NAA”) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 during Maintenance Mania® events and related activities (the “Activity”); however, NAA cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19 or any other infectious disease. Further, participation in the Activity could increase your risk of contracting COVID-19 or other infectious diseases. By attending or participating in a Maintenance Mania® event or activity, you certify that you do not fall into any of the following categories:
- Individuals who currently or within the past fourteen (14) days have experienced any symptoms associated with COVID-19, which include fever, cough, and shortness of breath among others;
- Individuals who have traveled at any point in the past fourteen (14) days either internationally or to a community in the U.S. that has experienced or is experiencing sustained community spread of COVID-19; or
- Individuals who believe that they may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for their treatment.
DUTY TO SELF-MONITOR
Participants and volunteers agree to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 (symptoms typically include fever, cough, and shortness of breath) and, contact Stefani Hurst with the National Apartment Association at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 797-0665 if he/she experiences symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days after participating or volunteering with Maintenance Mania® events or activities.
LIABILITY WAIVER AND RELEASE OF CLAIMS
I acknowledge that I am willingly engaging and participating in Maintenance Mania® events and related activities (the “activity”).
I hereby release, waive and forever discharge any and all liability, claims, and demands of whatever kind or nature against the National Apartment Association, including in each case, without limitation, their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, and agents (the “released parties”), either in law or in equity, to the fullest extent permissible by law, including but not limited to damages or losses caused by the negligence, fault or conduct of any kind on the part of the released parties, including but not limited to death, bodily injury, illness, economic loss or out of pocket expenses, or loss or damage to property, which I, my heirs, assignees, next of kin and/or legally appointed or designated representatives, may have or which may hereinafter accrue on my behalf, which arise or may hereafter arise from my participation with the activity.
ASSUMPTION OF THE RISKS
I acknowledge and understand that while National Apartment Association (“NAA”) has undertaken reasonable steps to lessen the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in connection with Maintenance Mania® (the “Activity”), NAA is not responsible in any manner for any risks related to COVID-19 or other infectious diseases in connection with the Activity.
I understand that COVID-19 is a highly contagious and dangerous disease, and that contact with the virus that causes COVID-19 and other infectious diseases may result in significant personal injury or death. While social distancing and wearing a mask may reduce this risk, the risk of serious illness and death remains. I am fully aware that participation in the Activity (including any related travel) 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 COVID-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 contact with, or transmission of, COVID-19 may result in risks including but not limited to loss, personal injury, permanent disability, sickness, death, damage, and expense, the exact nature of which are not currently ascertainable, and all of which are to be considered Inherent Risks.
I hereby voluntarily accept and assume all risk of loss, personal injury, permanent disability, sickness, death, damage, and expense arising from such Inherent Risks, even if arising from the negligence or fault of the Released Parties.
