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. 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. Governmental restrictions may change at any time without prior notice; the Association for Career and Technical Education (“ACTE”) cannot guarantee eligibility to travel or participate in the ACTE's CareerTech VISION Conference (“Event”) if restrictions change.
In order to attend the Event, individuals must:
Review and sign this Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability;
Abide by all safety and health protocols for the Event, which may include, but is not limited to, those protocols consistent with the guidance and recommendations of public health agencies for slowing the transmission and exposure to COVID-19, including, but not limited to, health questionnaires for all Event participants and sanitation procedures and physical distancing measures at and during the Event;
Monitor their health for any symptoms of COVID-19;
Not attend the Event if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19;
Not attend the Event if anyone in their household has tested positive for COVID-19 in the seven (7) days prior to the first date of the Event;
Withdraw their attendance at the Event should they experience any symptoms of COVID-19 during the Event; and

I agree to abide by any and all preventative measures that may be put in place by ACTE and promptly notify ACTE if I experience symptoms. I acknowledge that failure to follow these measures may result in being removed from the premises without any refund or reimbursement.

I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless ACTE (defined to include ACTE, its owners, insurers, employees, agents, and representatives) of and from the Claims, including any and all past, present, or future claims, demands, obligations, causes of action, wrongful death claims, rights, damages, costs, losses of services, expenses and compensation of any nature whatsoever, which have resulted or may result from the acts or omissions of ACTE. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the acts or omissions of ACTE, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after my access to the Event.
