COVID-19 Assumption of the Risk Forms

With the potential exposure of COVID-19 to the general public, college campuses and within fraternal community living groups, please use the Assumption of Risk and Hold Harmless agreements by your house corporations and with members, volunteers, visitors, and contractors whenever such persons would enter the chapter facility or participate in chapter activities. The intent of these forms is to make individuals aware of and assume the risk of contracting COVID-19, and to hold harmless the fraternity from such risks. Below are James R. Favor & Company’s (JRFCo) proposed assumption of the risk forms. There are five versions of the proposed assumption of the risk forms (Chapter Facility Resident, Student Member, Volunteer, Contractor, and Visitor versions) each intended to have the same effect. The reason for the different versions is to help the users of the assumption of the risk forms pay attention to the many different types of relationships a chapter and the individual persons have. Users of the assumption of the risk forms should focus on having each assumption of the risk form executed by the proper persons at the right time. The executed assumption of the risk forms should be safely maintained by the appropriate chapter, house corporation, or General Fraternity designee and, if possible, also scanned and saved electronically.
