(Indianapolis, IN) - A fast tracked bill to limit legal liability for coronavirus infection came to a vote in Indianapolis this week.
The Indiana Senate voted 40 to 8 to approve legislation limiting COVID 19 liability for businesses, schools, not for profits, and health care providers. The bill would prevent legal claims filed by people who contract the virus at work or in a business. Only instances of gross negligence would be eligible for legal action.
The Indiana House is set to approve a similar bill on Monday. The two chambers will then work out a final draft to send to the governor, who has pledged to sign it.
