Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to COVID-19

The novel coronavirus, 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. However, there remain many unknowns about COVID-19, how it spreads, and its impact on athletes.

By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending Fortis Academy training sessions and activities and that such exposure or infection may result in severe illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at Fortis may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Fortis employees, contractors, 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 myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I may experience or incur in connection with my attendance at The Fortis Academy or participation in The Fortis Academy programming (“Claims”). On my behalf, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless The Fortis Academy, 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 Fortis Academy, its employees, contractors, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Fortis Academy program.
