On Saturday, Gov. Baker approved much of the COVID-19 spending bill including:
- The provision that reinstates liability immunity protections for health care providers and entities where a patient’s care has been impacted by COVID-19 and its variants from Nov. 22, 2021 to February 28, 2022; and
- Delays implementation of the state’s notice and disclosure law that was issued as a DPH bulletin “Health Care Provider Obligations”, which outlines the patient notification provisions of Chapter 260. Implementation is delayed until July 31, 2022.
