As such, I, for myself, my next of kin, family members, heirs, representatives, agents, successors and assigns, hereby release Hadassah, its chapters, regions, units, related entities and affiliates and their officers, directors, employees, volunteers, representatives, agents, successors and assigns and anyone claiming through them (collectively, “Hadassah Releasees”), in their individual and/or organizational capacities from any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, obligations, and causes of action of any nature and kind (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), known or unknown, which I have, ever had or may in the future have against Hadassah Releasees arising out of or relating to any exposure to or illness resulting from COVID-19.
This Waiver/Release shall be governed by and enforceable in accordance with and shall be subject to the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict or choice of law provisions. I hereby consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of any state or federal court located within the City of New York and waive any objection to jurisdiction and venue of any action instituted hereunder and agree not to assert any defense based on lack of jurisdiction or venue.
