The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) – Legal Immunity To Volunteer Health Care Providers

On Friday, March 27, 2020, The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) was signed into law. CARES provides legal immunity to volunteer health care providers in the absence of reckless conduct or gross negligence.  For details of the immunity, see This bill encourages our health care providers to assist in any way they can. If you are a health care worker and are considering volunteering, please consider this immunity!
