Important COVID-19 Information
COVID-19, a highly infectious disease caused by the novel coronavirus, is currently classified as a pandemic by public health authorities. It is associated with severe symptoms including acute respiratory issues, severe damage to lungs and other organs and death. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, and individuals over age 65 and people of any age who have certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. COVID-19 is not fully understood at this time, and understanding of the symptoms, risks and spread of the disease may change over time. Although NBAA will take all reasonable safety precautions to protect the health of participants, because thousands of attendees are expected, NBAA cannot guarantee that participants will not be exposed to COVID-19 during attendance at the event.
COVID-19 Liability Waiver/Assumption of Risk
All participants at the 2022 NBAA Maintenance Conference acknowledge that their participation is completely voluntary and that they understand the dangers of COVID-19 and the risks of exposure described above.
