I hereby acknowledge being aware of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, including the spread of coronavirus (the virus
causing COVID-19) across the United States. In addition, I acknowledge being aware that some individuals have developed severe illness from COVID-19 and that some individuals have died as a result.
I hereby acknowledge that there are certain risks inherent with any travel with respect to potential exposures to and/or contraction of infectious diseases such as coronaviruses, including the recent COVID-19 virus and disease, as well as others, such as the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (“MERS”) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (“SARS”) (collectively, “infectious diseases”).
I understand that by participating in a VetsRoll, Inc® program, including, but not limited to, a trip to Dayton, OH and to Washington, DC and surrounding areas as specified herein (“Trip”), I may need to travel by bus for extended periods of time and that I will likely be present in crowded places including non-private areas accessible to and visited by many other members of the public.
I hereby further acknowledge that while the risk of exposure to and/or contraction of infectious diseases, such as COVID19, can be mitigated to some extent, all risk cannot be prevented.
Therefore, I hereby assume those risks of exposure to and/or contraction of infectious diseases which are beyond the control of VetsRoll, Inc®, including their respective board members, directors, officers, employees, agents, affiliates, independent contractors and representatives (collectively, the “VetsRoll experience”).
For the sake of clarity, I understand and agree that by assuming such risks, I am expressly releasing any and all claims against VetsRoll, Inc® associated with exposure to and/or contraction of infectious diseases during or after the Trip, including, but not limited to negligence claims against VetsRoll, Inc®.
I acknowledge that VetsRoll, Inc® does not have any particular expertise in dealing with infectious diseases such as COVID-19
I acknowledge that I am participating on the Trip of my own free will, having been offered the opportunity to postpone my travel until the COVID-19 situation in the United States—especially in Dayton, OH and Washington, DC and surrounding areas such as Arlington, Virginia—is better understood and controlled.
Finally, I agree that VetsRoll, Inc® shall not be financially responsible for any medical bills or unexpected expenses that I may incur during the Trip, for example due to emergency or other medical treatment or any quarantine that may be required of me in connection with the Trip.
I acknowledge VetsRoll, Inc® is willing to discuss the foregoing with me and attempt to address any concerns I may request prior to my signing this document and that I have agreed to the foregoing conditions in consideration for the opportunity to promptly make the Trip.
