14.4 – We cannot guarantee that the tests performed as part of our Services will be 100% accurate due to the nature of the test being performed or that Fit2Fly Certificates will be valid and you will be accepted to fly by a particular airline. Results are only an indicator of a snapshot in time and due to the nature of CVOID-19 being a highly infectious virus which can be contracted at any time when in the presence of other individuals carrying the virus, there will always be a risk that you may come into contact with the virus after the point at which the Sample is taken.
