Immunity for Health Care Workers

Under existing Maryland law, under a catastrophic health emergency proclamation, health care providers are immune from civil or criminal liability if the health care provider acts in good faith. As a result of Governor Larry Hogan’s declaration of a state of emergency on March 5, 2020, the immunity provision has gone into effect.
