Worried about someone getting infected and suing your restaurant when you’ve taken reasonable steps to comply with ever-changing guidelines? The National Restaurant Association Restaurant Law Center has assembled a state-by-state guide that covers where COVID-19 liability protection legislation stands in states where it’s been discussed, proposed or passed.

Each state listing tells:

  • Whether legislation has been proposed or passed.
  • Its current status.
  • A bill number, if applicable.
  • A summary of the law.
  • Any limitations.
  • A link to the legislation, where available.

None of the statutes provide complete immunity to legal liability for exposure to COVID-19—which, in fact, is not what the industry is seeking—but they do establish a higher bar to bring a successful claim. The resource is updated regularly.
