COVID RELEASE AND RELATED INFORMATION
Fully recognizing that every individual’s situation is in flux—between job losses, company travel freezes, etc.—our goal is to make it easier for you to attend the Oil & Gas Law Short Course. As a result, we have implemented a risk-free registration. You may cancel your registration through October 8, 2021 for a full refund. After October 8, 2021 and before the first day of the event you may cancel your registration for a full refund minus a 10% administrative fee. Cancellations must be received by the stated cancellation deadline and will be accepted by email only. We apologize that we cannot issue any refunds on or after the first day of the event. No shows for the event will not receive a refund or credit. Advance room deposits are not required by the Westin Westminster, so you can make an advance room reservation and cancel it without penalty up to a week before the start of the course.
COVID-19 Risk Acknowledgment, Waiver, and Release
When you register you must agree to the following:
To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and its variants, all speakers and registrants must provide evidence that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 OR that they have received a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours before the start of the event, or they will not be allowed to enter and participate in the event. To ensure a smooth registration process, fully vaccinated speakers and registrants are strongly encouraged to email a PDF copy or photo of their vaccination card to email@example.com with a reference to Oil & Gas Law Short Course at least 10 days before the start of the program. Otherwise, they should bring their vaccination card or negative test to the event. In addition, the course sponsors will follow the health and safety practices mandated by the host hotel and by applicable federal, state, and local authorities. Those practices will be determined close to the date of the event and may become more or less strict between registration and the event. By registering for and attending this event, you: (1) acknowledge the risks associated with COVID-19 and its variants; (2) agree to comply with any applicable health and safety practices and precautions that may be mandated for the event (regardless of whether federal, state, or local laws mandate the use of such practices),; (3) agree to monitor your own health status and not attend the event if you are symptomatic in any way or believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or its variants; and (4) waive and forever release and discharge the course sponsors and their present and former directors, officers, employees, agents, volunteers, and insurers from and against, any and all claims, demands, causes of action, liabilities, obligations, costs, expenses, and indemnities of every kind and nature, in law or in equity, known or unknown, fixed or contingent, arising out of or related to exposure to, contracting, or spreading COVID-19 or its variants at or in connection with this event.
International Travel Information (as of May 24, 2021)
Per the latest CDC Guidelines, while fully vaccinated people can travel within the U.S. without getting a Covid-19 test or having to quarantine, all international travelers entering the U.S. are still required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test prior to boarding. In addition, if you are an international traveler and you are not fully vaccinated, the testing and quarantine requirements will not allow you to attend this course.
These guidelines may change by the time of the course, and we will update this information as available.
