Ohio Governor Signs COVID Lawsuit Protection Law

On Monday, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine (R), signed a bill into law that will temporarily protect businesses and people from COVID-related lawsuits, according to a report in WFMJ. The new law provides liability protections for individuals, schools, healthcare professionals and businesses.

Recently, the National Federation of Independent Business released the results of a survey that found more than 70 percent of Ohio entrepreneurs are fearful of a COVID-related lawsuit.

Similarly, a national study by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found that two-thirds of small businesses are worried about COVID-related lawsuits. The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform also conducted a poll that found that the majority of the American public believe that employers need some kind of liability protections from COVID-related lawsuits as post-pandemic plans are realized.
