Webinar: COVID Immunity Issues Impacting Healthcare Providers-The PREP Act and State Immunity Orders-A Get Out of Trouble Card or More Trouble Than .. Read more Its Worth?. The COVID-19 Crisis has created unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances in healthcare delivery that has compelled the Department of Health and Human Services to expand the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP) for certain COVID medical countermeasures by licensed healthcare professionals and for certain covered persons and entities. Some States similarly have issued immunity orders for COVID related circumstances or have proposed immunity legislation. This webinar will explore the scope of the PREP Act and State immunity orders and what impact these limited governmental immunities may have on tort, regulatory and enforcement exposures for the health industry and what risk management actions make sense now.
