Business groups say Gov. Wolf’s civil immunity for healthcare providers not enough

Last week, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf signed an executive order giving certain healthcare practitioners protection against liability for good faith actions taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic – a move state business groups say does not go far enough, according to a report in Pennsylvania Business Report.

PA Chamber of Business and Industry President and CEO Gene Barr said businesses on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle – such as those working to make personal protective equipment and ensure critical supply chains continue – should be protected from unscrupulous lawsuits as well. Barr cited a recent poll by ILR that shows the majority of Americans believe that employers must have protections from COVID-19-related lawsuits as they reopen.
