COVID 19 Waiver
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is a contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and individuals with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
The Northern Virginia Swimming League (NVSL) cannot prevent you (or your child(ren)) from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while participating in NVSL-sanctioned events. It is not possible to prevent against the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to participate in a NVSL-sanctioned event, you may be exposing yourself to and/or increasing your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. BY ATTENDING OR PARTICIPATING IN PRACICE OR COMPETITION, YOU VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH EXPOSURE TO COVID-19 AND FOREVER RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS THE PARLIAMENT SWIM AND DIVE TEAM, ITS COACHES, TEAM REPRESENTATIVES, VOLUNTEERS, PROPERTY MANAGER, EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS, AS WELL AS THE NORTHERN VIRGINIA SWIMMING LEAGUE AND ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, AGENTS, EMPLOYEES OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES FROM ANY LIABILITY OR CLAIMS INCLUDING FOR PERSONAL INJURIES, DEATH, DISEASE OR PROPERTY LOSSES, OR ANY OTHER LOSS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CLAIMS OF NEGLIGENCE, AND GIVE UP ANY CLAIMS YOU MAY HAVE TO SEEK DAMAGES, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, FORESEEN OR UNFORESEEN, IN CONNECTION WITH EXPOSURE, INFECTION, AND/OR SPREAD OF COVID-19 RELATED TO PARTICIPATION IN PRACTICE OR COMPETITION. Teams and their pools have taken enhanced health and safety measures for all attending meets; however, we cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. All attending practices and meets must follow all posted instructions while in attendance. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By attending, you acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID19. By choosing to attend practices and meets, you agree to comply with all health and safety mandates and guidelines of the Commonwealth of Virginia, your local government, and the pool at which you are participating, either at your home pool or while competing at another NVSL-member pool.
