Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement
By registering for and/or attending an event, meeting, and/or conference (“Event”) sponsored, hosted, or coordinated by the Mobile Area Association of REALTORS® (“MAAR”), I agree to the following:
COVID-19 Warning. 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. COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness and even death. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, restricted the congregation of groups of people. For the purposes of this Agreement, whenever reference is made to COVID-19, the reference shall include COVID-19 and any and all variants of COVID-19.
Release. I have read and understood the above warning concerning COVID-19. I hereby choose to accept the risk of contracting COVID-19 in order to participate in the Event. I release, and waive my right to bring suit against, MAAR and its officers, directors, managers, officials, agents, employees, or other representatives in connection with exposure, infection, and/or spread of COVID-19 related to participating in the Event or in any other in-person events or activities sponsored or coordinated by MAAR (“MAAR Activities”). I understand that this waiver means I give up my right to bring any 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 claim I may have to seek damages, whether known or unknown, foreseen or unforeseen.
Agreement to Follow Procedures. I agree to adhere to preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 at Event and at any other MAAR Activities.

- I will notify MAAR by e-mailing MobileRealtors@gcmls.com if I become aware of information that poses a danger previously unknown, such as a positive COVID-19 test or the development of COVID-19 symptoms in myself or other contacts within fourteen (14) days of the Event.
