GDA Member Alert – COVID-19 Immunity Bill Signed Into Law With Updated CDC/ADA/DPH Guidance 08/06/2020

On August 6, 2020, Governor Kemp signed SB 359, the Georgia COVID-19 Pandemic Business Safety Act, into law. It provides healthcare providers (including dentists, their staff, and their practices) with limited immunity from civil liability for COVID-19 related legal claims (e.g., transmission, infection, exposure or potential exposure, etc.) unless the claimant proves gross negligence, willful and wanton misconduct, reckless infliction of harm, or intentional infliction of harm.

The immunity law also references the posting of the following written statement/sign at a point of entry to the premises in at least one-inch Arial font placed apart from any other text.   

The statement reads: 

Warning:

Under Georgia law, there is no liability for an injury or death of an individual entering these premises if such injury or death results from the inherent risks of contracting COVID-19. You are assuming this risk by entering these premises.


UPDATED DENTAL RESOURCES/GUIDANCE:

Please contact the GDA’s General Counsel & VP of Government Affairs, Scott Lofranco, if you have any questions about the foregoing announcement.
