Ny Coalition Calls For Liability Protections To Be Included In Any Plan To Re-Open The State’s Economy

Today, a coalition of business and tourism advocates delivered a letter to officials in New York recommending additional liability protections be included in any plans to re-open the state economy. The letter recognizes measures already put in place for medical workers and urged similar protections be extended to other sectors. 

“Until there is a vaccine, opening our economy presents risks. Every retailer, every restaurant, every movie theatre, and every school undertakes some risk by opening their doors,” the coalition writes in their letter. “Regardless of any precautions, when customers and employees begin to move in and out of our businesses again, these risks are unavoidable. New York must recognize this and enact meaningful liability protections to ensure our economy is not further devastated by COVID-related lawsuits during the recovery.”

The letter was delivered to Governor Andrew Cuomo, the state legislature, and members of the newly announced New York Forward Re-Opening Advisory Board.
