Petition for Immunity for Physicians and Health Care Workers During COVID-19

Pima County Medical Society member C. Bree Johnston, MD, MPH has a petition on change.org titled: Immunity for physicians and health care systems during COVID-19.

The petition is directed to the Arizona State House and Arizona State Senate.

The petition is asking the state House and Senate “to pass a law that would protect health care systems, physicians, and other health care providers from civil or criminal liability if they are acting in good faith under a catastrophic health care emergency protocol or proclamation. We ask you to act immediately to protect our health care workers from one source of distress while they risk their lives to protect the public during this unprecedented epidemic.”
