As with the transmission of any communicable disease, like a cold or the flu, you may be exposed to COVID-19 (also known as “coronavirus”) at any time or any place.
We want you to know that we recommend and expect our students, visitors, staff, and faculty, to follow personal-protection and disinfection protocols to limit transmission of all diseases at our campuses, including but not limited to hand washing, the wearing of masks, and of maintaining recommended social distancing.
In spite of these recommendations and expectations, however, there still is a chance that you may be exposed to an illness at one of our Campuses, just as you might at your gym, grocery store, or any other place where people may congregate, and we want to make sure that you understand these risks. We therefore ask you to review, understand, and agree to the following terms and conditions.
You have not had a positive COVID-19 test within 14 days prior today’s date.
You have not exhibited any symptoms of COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
To the best of your knowledge, you have not been in the presence of or otherwise been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for, or exhibited symptoms of, COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
You are aware that some people who have certain underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk for severe consequences from COVID-19 and that either you do not have any such underlying conditions or that, if you do, that you are aware of the risks and have been informed that you have the right to, and should, seek the advice of your own medical professional before attending a NATS.
If you arrive at NATS and are determined to be ill such that you cannot remain at the campus, we will require that you leave and follow appropriate measures to contact your Dr or Public Health unit. It may be required to complete a COVID test prior to returning to campus.
To the fullest extent permissible under law, you agree to waive and forego any claim or cause of action that you may have against NATS, its affiliates, owners, members, employees, directors, board members, agents, hosts, and volunteers, and all of their representatives, heirs, estates, successors, and assigns, attributable to, arising out of, or in any way related to COVID-19 or other communicable diseases that you may contract while at a NATS. You understand and agree that, by your signature below, you are providing us with your informed consent to waive any right to make a claim or bring a cause of action with full knowledge of the risk of COVID-19, including that it may cause severe illness up to and including death, and you accept this risk. For the avoidance of doubt, you further understand and agree that your informed consent means that you cannot sue us if you contract COVID-19.
You understand and agree that this COVID-19 Waiver: (a) is in addition to other applicable forms and agreements, including but not limited to your Enrollment Agreement, the Student Code of Conduct and any other signed documentation related to your program or visit to the campus today; (b) does not supersede any other such forms and agreement; and (c) to the extent of any conflict between this COVID-19 Waiver and any other form or agreement, if such conflict specifically relates to COVID-19 or any other communicable disease, then COVID-19 controls.
