Notwithstanding continuing unfulfilled promises of business liability shields from COVID lawsuits at the federal level, a number of additional states are now considering implementing their own liability shields at the state level. Currently, both Indiana and Florida are considering bills filed for the new legislative sessions that would provide a level of immunity from potentially frivolous COVID related claims. In Florida, identical bills were filed in the House (HB 7) and Senate (SB 72) that would require any COVID-19 related lawsuit to include an affidavit signed by an active physician attesting that “within a reasonable degree of medical certainty, the alleged injuries or damages were the result of the defendant’s acts or omissions.” The bill would require the court to dismiss the complaint without prejudice if either condition was not met and further, it would also require the court to determine whether the defendant made a good faith effort to substantially comply with government guidelines and mandates. Indiana legislators will be considering two different legislative proposals that would each provide general immunity from civil liability for damages resulting from exposure to COVID-19. Senate bill 1 does not provide absolute immunity, specifically excluding action or omissions rising to the level of gross negligence or willful or wanton misconduct under Indiana law, as proven by clear and convincing evidence. The Indiana House is considering a similar measure, House Bill 1002, which would also expressly protect health care workers. Both bills, which will be consolidated during the session, are retroactive – the House version to February 29, 2020 and effective through April 1, 2022 while Senate Bill 1 would be effective March 1, 2020 through December 31, 2024.
