ISSA Updates State Liability Map to Reflect Flurry of State Actions

April 15, 2021 ISSA Updates State Liability Map to Reflect Flurry of State Actions

ISSA has updated its Summary of State-by-State COVID-19 Liability Protections resource to reflect recent activities by states on this important issue, including an updated map indicating which U.S. states have passed legislation or executive orders related to COVID-19 liability protections or have introduced or expect such legislation.

“We’ve seen a significant amount of legislative movement on limited COVID-19 liability protections at the state level in 2021,” said ISSA Director of Government Affairs John Nothdurft. “ISSA will continue to monitor this interest and advocate for reasonable liability protections on behalf of the cleaning industry.”

The industry continues to work to protect Americans from COVID-19 through the critical provision of cleaning and disinfecting products and services. However, as these workers and businesses keep our communities safe and healthy, ISSA members remain concerned that, despite doing their best to follow applicable state and federal guidelines, they may be forced to defend against an onslaught of frivolous lawsuits.

ISSA is working diligently to support the full spectrum of the cleaning industry in the U.S. and around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic, including providing a variety of government affairs resources. Please support the ISSA Advocacy Fund in any amount to help us achieve liability protections for essential businesses that have taken precautions to protect their employees from the spread of COVID-19.
