Point of Interest
“McConnell pushes liability protection in new COVID-19 relief package”
Granting a carte blanche immunity from liability to employers for C-19 is an error.  That would leave all workers at the mercy of their employers, who could force them to work or lose their job no matter the risk and remain immune for any liability if their own c-19 practices turn out to be inadequate and they suffer a bloom.
