(For tours departing Jan. 1–Dec. 31, 2023)
The novel coronavirus, COVID-19 (“COVID-19”), has been declared a worldwide pandemic and is reported to be very contagious. While the state of medical knowledge around COVID-19 is evolving, the virus is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact and evidence has shown it can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness and even death.
Celtic RnR Tours is taking precautionary measures in line with science-based health guidelines to protect against the spread of the virus. Nevertheless, Celtic RnR Tours cannot prevent you from becoming exposed to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 while on a Celtic RnR tour. Therefore, if you choose to go on tour with Celtic RnR Tours you may be exposing yourself to and/or increasing your risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19.
Before, during, or after your tour with Celtic RnR Tours, you may also experience unexpected costs associated with COVID-19, such as, but not limited to, medical care, food and lodging during an unexpected quarantine imposed by local health or government officials, missed flights, airport closures, transportation cancellations or delays, etc. You will be solely responsible for the expenses associated with these circumstances.
By registering for a tour, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and the unknown expenses that may be a result of COVID-19, and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 or experience unanticipated costs associated with COVID-19 by participating in the Celtic RnR tour. I also voluntarily assume the risk that a COVID-19 infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming infected by COVID-19 on a Celtic RnR tour may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to Celtic RnR Tours employees, Celtic RnR Tours partners (and partner employees) and other passengers. I understand that complete knowledge of the risk factors of contracting COVID-19 is not known and that unknown or unanticipated risks may result in injury, illness, death or any other loss. I agree that having considered these risks, I wish to participate in the tour, and I freely and voluntarily assume complete personal responsibility for the risk of expense, exposure, illness, and death due to COVID-19, even if such injuries or death occur in a manner that is not foreseeable at the time this agreement is signed.
I for myself, and on behalf of my and their heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury (including, but not limited to personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability or expense of any kind that I may experience or incur in connection with my Celtic RnR tour and its activities (“Claims”). I hereby release, agree not to sue, discharge and hold harmless Celtic RnR Tours, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or related to it. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Celtic RnR Tours, its employees, agents and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Celtic RnR Tours tour.
I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. No additions, deletions, or changes can be made to the release form, and signing it is a requirement for joining the tour.
