Description

Hospices, home care organizations, private providers, assisted living facilities, and adult day care centers; immunity from liability. Repeals the provision that a licensed hospice, home care organization, private provider, assisted living facility, or adult day care center that delivers care to or withholds care from a patient, resident, or person receiving services who is diagnosed as being or is believed to be infected with the COVID-19 virus shall not be liable for any injury or wrongful death of such patient, resident, or person receiving services arising from the delivery or withholding of care when the emergency and subsequent conditions caused by the emergency result in a lack of resources, attributable to the disaster, that render such hospice, home care organization, private provider, assisted living facility, or adult day care center unable to provide the level or manner of care that otherwise would have been required in the absence of the emergency and that resulted in the injury or wrongful death at issue.

Looking for Vaccine Info?

When it comes to health, everyone wants reliable, up-to-date information. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has information that can help answer questions you might have about vaccines.

Go to CDC.gov

Richmond Sunlight prohibits comments that spread propaganda about COVID-19 or COVID vaccines. We will promptly delete any claims that COVID isn’t serious, or claims that vaccines are unsafe or ineffective.
