FENTON, Mo. – Missouri Governor Mike Parson signed the COVID-19 liability law today at Koller-Craft Plastic Products in Fenton.
The governor will discuss the bill this morning in Jefferson City.
The law prohibits COVID-19 lawsuits against businesses and health care providers unless the person suing can prove they were exposed and sickened by the coronavirus and that the business engaged in “reckless or willful misconduct.”
Religious organizations will also be shielded from COVID-19 exposure lawsuits unless “intentional misconduct” can be proven.
