How To Prepare & Defend Your Communities Against COVID-19 Liability Claims: What Protections are Included in the New Legislation?

April 27, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am UTC-5

Senior living communities have worked tirelessly this past year and continue to follow guidance to protect their residents and staff from the COVID-19 virus. With, at best, limited federal protections under the PREP Act, and the inability of state executive orders limiting liability, the Florida Legislature sprung into action to provide our businesses, including long-term care facilities, Covid-19 liability protections via passage of SB 72.

Providers have many questions but, most of all, what does this legislation really mean and how does it protect providers? What type of protections are in place now to prevent lawsuits? What about my insurance coverage, rate premiums and claims coverages?
