COVID- 19 Assumption of Risk, Waiver, and Release of Liability: I understand and acknowledge that COVID-19 is a global pandemic and a public health risk. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at Cornell University may arise from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and/or others. I recognize that the University cannot limit all potential sources of COVID-19 infection. I knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks, including but not limited to, the risk of illness, death, bodily injury, disability, or exposure or infection with COVID-19, for myself, and my family. I fully understand the risks, I knowingly and voluntarily waive and release Cornell University trustees, officers, agents, volunteers, employees, and students (the “Released Parties”) from all present and future claims of any type, including negligence, for any harm or loss, including but not limited to, economic loss, personal injury, disease, death or property damage suffered by me or my family, as a result of my participation in a Cornell University program, camp, or activity or as a result of my presence on Cornell University’s campus (the “Activities”). I agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and covenant not to sue the Released Parties for any personal injury, death, medical expenses, disability, loss of capacity, property damage, court costs, attorney’s fees, or other loss arising out of the Activities. I understand in the event that COVID public health measures exclude or limit the number of spectators at a ticketed event, then all tickets are eligible for refund or exchange. Otherwise, all ticket purchases are non-refundable/non-transferrable.

BAG POLICY

Permissible bags include clear totes (not exceeding 12”x6”x12”), 1-gallon clear storage bags, strapless/handheld clutches (not exceeding 6.5" x 4.5") and diaper bags (must be accompanied by a child).

How many bags can I bring?
One bag, per guest is permitted.

How do clear bags improve public safety?
The clear bag is easily searched and reduces imperfect bag checks. It also supports the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something, say something” campaign.

What happens if I arrive to an event with an unauthorized bag?
Fans who bring unauthorized bags to the game will be asked to return the bags to their vehicle. No secure storage options will be available for personal belongings.

Is there a bag check in addition to the clear bag policy?
Any bag that is allowed into a Cornell Athletics venue is subject to a bag check.

Are seat cushions and seat back chairs still allowed?
Yes, however they cannot have pockets, zippers or be in their own carrying bag.

Is this policy for all Cornell sports?
The clear bag policy will be implemented at all ticketed events occurring at Schoellkopf Field (football, men’s lacrosse), Lynah Rink (men' & women's ice hockey), Newman Arena (men's & women's basketball) and Friedman Wrestling Center (wrestling).
