The Artist shall indemnify and hold harmless the College, including, but not limited to, its employees, officers, trustees, insurers, attorneys, agents, and consultants, from all demands, claims, suits, actions, liabilities, costs and expenses, including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees arising out of any and all actions at law or equity including, but not limited to, causes of action for death, negligence, tort, personal injury or property damage, brought against the College related to or arising out of the use of any College facility or service by the Artist or the Artist’s employees, contractors, sub-contractors, licensees, invitees, customers, attendees or guests during the term of this Agreement. 

COVID-19 WAIVER OF LIABILITY:

Cedar Crest College, in conjunction with the guidance issued by the Center of Disease Control (CDC), the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PADOE), the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Allentown Health Bureau, is actively engaged in reducing the spread of the Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19. All Cedar Crest College personnel must engage in social distancing and other preventative measures, including wearing facemasks. All guests and visitors, including clients, must also engage in these preventative measures in order to reduce potential exposure.

The Artist(s) recognizes, acknowledges, and agrees, that because the College is open for use by other individuals, the Artist(s) recognizes that they are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19. With full awareness and appreciation of the risks involved, the Artist(s), hereby forever releases, waives, discharges, and covenant not to sue Cedar Crest College, and its related entities, board members, officers, agents, servants, independent contractors, affiliates, employees, successors, and assigns (collectively the “Released Parties”) from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions, and causes of action whatsoever, directly or indirectly arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by the Artist(s) related to COVID-19 whether caused by the negligence of the Released Parties, any third-party using the facility, or otherwise, while participating in any activity while in, on, or around the College and/or while using any College facility, equipment, or materials.

The Artist(s) agrees to utilize personal protective equipment to reduce the risk of exposure while on College grounds. The Artist(s) acknowledges that their participants will abide by all College requirements, as well as those published by the CDC, Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Allentown Health Bureau.

This Waiver shall be construed exclusively in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without regard to the principles of conflicts of laws therein. In the event that a dispute arises under this Agreement and legal action is instituted, the parties agree that such action shall be maintained exclusively in the Court of Common Pleas for Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. If any portion hereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.

We welcome you to our campus. By signing below, you agree to comply with the aforementioned guidelines. Failure to comply with these guidelines or verbal instructions from a College representative may result in your removal from the premises.

This waiver is an agreement that the Artist(s) will follow CDC guidelines and does not constitute legal advice. Please take into consideration your unique circumstances before deciding risk of exposure to the Novel Coronavirus. While CCC does its best to ensure safety, CCC has no liability for any consequences, foreseen or otherwise, that occur as a result of attending this event or camp, in whole or in part. The client must complete this waiver prior to their event.
