The measure was introduced earlier this year to offer business protection from potential COVID-19 litigation. Opposition groups feel as though the measure could limit responsibility as businesses reopen amid an ongoing pandemic.
As businesses begin to reopen, many companies are introducing measures to ensure public safety amid the pandemic, including limited indoor capacities, mandated mask guidelines, temperature checks, and more.
