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.
