I understand the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by a Communicable Disease by attending the Conference and that such exposure or infection may result in quarantine requirements, serious illness, permanent disability, and/or death. I further understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by a Communicable Disease at the Conference may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, ISITC, its partners, affiliates, attendees, members, officers, employees, contractors, agents, representatives, sponsors, other participants, and any owners and lessors of premises used to conduct the Conferences (“Releasees”).

A. I HEREBY RELEASE, COVENANT NOT TO SUE, DISCHARGE AND HOLD HARMLESS the Releasees, with respect to any and all liabilities, claims, penalties, suits, demands, judgments, costs, interests and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs) arising from or relating to the illness, disability, or death of myself (or any person who may contract a Communicable Disease, directly or indirectly, from me), as a direct or indirect result, in whole or in part, of a Communicable Disease, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
