Idaho Legislature Passes COVID-19 Liability Protections

On the third day of the Idaho Legislature’s special session, lawmakers passed legislation to protect businesses, schools, and other local entities for coronavirus related lawsuits, according to a report in the Idaho Statesman. The bill outlines that if businesses, cities, counties, people, or schools make an effort to avoid transmission and are not willfully or recklessly spreading the virus, they cannot be held liable.

The bill heads next to Gov. Brad Little’s desk for final consideration. Little said he convened the special session, at least in part, to address civil liability protection during the pandemic.
