Organizations Call on Congress to Pass COVID-19 Liability Protections in the "SAFE TO WORK Act"

View Letter

This week, the Real Estate Roundtable along with 480 organizations wrote to Congress calling for passage of the timely, targeted, and temporary COVID-19 liability relief provisions set forth in S. 4317, the ‚ÄúSAFE TO WORK Act".

These crucial protections would safeguard healthcare workers, providers, and facilities, as well as businesses, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions against unfair lawsuits so they can continue to contribute to a safe and effective economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This legislation is critically needed and should be enacted as soon as possible.

The letter urges support for the inclusion of these provisions in a Phase IV COVID-19 relief package.
