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. Wearing mask is mandatory at all times inside academy and on training.
American Bodyguard Academy, associates and affiliates have put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, American Bodyguard Academy, associates and affiliates cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending the courses and training could increase your risk and risk of contracting COVID-19.
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, including any existing or emerging variants/strains, by attending the course and training and being around other student, staff and instructors, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the training may result from many reasons, including but not limited to the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, employees, staff, instructors, and course participants and instructors.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my 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 other students or attendance at the training or participation in programming (“Claims”). On my behalf, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless American Bodyguard Academy, associates and affiliates, staff, volunteers, private contractor, employees, students, instructors, 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 American Bodyguard Academy, its employees, students, instructors’ students, staff, volunteers, private contractors, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any training or courses or program.
