Insights: Alert COVID-19 Chart of State Immunity Statutes
Please note: The below information may require updating, including additional clarification, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop. Please monitor our main COVID-19 Task Force page and/or your email for updates.
With uncertainty surrounding efforts in the Senate to enact broad COVID-19-related immunity for all schools, colleges, charities and businesses in the Phase 4 Coronavirus relief act, the “HEALS Act,” organizations still need to keep tabs on the immunity provisions in their states. Most of those laws still focus on health care workers, but some offer wider-reaching immunities, in some cases with conditions. As we pointed out earlier, these statutes and their conditions may assist employers and customer-facing businesses with “assumption of risk” arguments even in states in which they have not been enacted. States not included have not enacted a COVID-19 immunity statute.
