The Nebraska Governor has signed a law that would provide some COVID liability protections in the state.

AKC GR encouraged clubs to support LB 139 and LB 52 as introduced, which both addressed the issue of COVID liability.

As amended by the Nebraska Legislature, LB 139 states in part that no person may seek recovery for exposure or potential exposure relating to COVID if the act or omission in question was in substantial compliance with federal health mandates.  Click the link to read the bill in its entirety.

The bill was signed by the governor on May 25 and goes into immediate effect.
