Immunity for negligent businesses is a bad ideacommentary

May 31, 2020 - Orlando Sentinel (Florida)

I'm a big believer in personal responsibility.

If I decide to visit a theme park in the middle of a pandemic - and catch a virus after voluntarily cramming my body into the Tower of Terror with 20 other people - that's on me.

But if my father, who's confined to the dementia ward of an assisted living facility, contracts the virus after a worker there tells her boss she thinks she has the virus - and that boss tells her to come to work anyway - that would be on the facility.
