Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, the Executives’ Club of Chicago is updating our existing guidelines, and until further notice will require all attending Exec Club in-person events to be fully vaccinated* and provide proof of vaccination upon request.
COVID-19 Safety Information. The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a pandemic and public health emergency by various public authorities, including the Center for Disease Control (CDC). COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. According to the CDC, senior citizens and those with preexisting medical conditions are especially vulnerable. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies have imposed certain rules and guidelines to respond to COVID-19. Please note that federal, state, and local orders and guidelines continue to quickly evolve. At this time, applicable authorities recommend that:
Attestation. By voluntarily attending an in-person event sponsored by the Exec Club, you agree to comply with all rules imposed by the CDC, federal state and local governments, the rules required at the premises of the event, if any, and the rules of the Exec Club, regarding conduct at the event related to COVID-19, and to conduct yourself in a reasonable and safe manner, in accordance with guidance from public health authorities. By attending an Exec Club event, you further certify that you do not fall into any of the following categories:
If you fall under any of the above categories, please do not attend the event at the Exec Club that evening. The Exec Club will be happy to refund/reschedule your pre-purchased ticket and have you join us virtually or at a later date. Additionally, following your attendance at an event, you agree to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and to contact the Exec Club within 14 days after attending an event if you experience symptoms of COVID-19 or are subsequently diagnosed with COVID-19.
Assumption of Risk. Given the known contagious nature of COVID-19, you assume the risk that you may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by attending the Exec Club’s event and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and/or death. Further, you acknowledge and understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the Exec Club’s event may result from your or others’ actions, omissions, or negligence, including, but not limited to, Exec Club employees, vendors or other guests. By voluntarily attending this event, you acknowledge that you understand and assume the risks relating to COVID-19 exposure and any resulting injury (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that you may experience or incur in connection with your attendance.
*A person is “fully vaccinated” when it has been more than 2 weeks following receipt of the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series or more than 2 weeks following receipt of 1 dose of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
