Immunity Not Included in Recent Federal COVID-19 Relief Legislation

Congress was considering broad legislation that would have had a devastating impact on residents for long-term care facilities for years.   The immunity legislation was tied to the most recent COVID-19 relief bill, and it seemed inevitable that civil immunity was going to pass.  However, thanks to your advocacy,  immunity was not included in the legislation!  Your voice was heard by Congress and was crucial in helping preserve necessary protections for residents. The National Consumer Voice attributes protections for residents to advocacy.
