Immunity Law Now In Effect In Tennessee
Tennessee’s new “Immunity Law” went into effect on Friday without the governor’s signature. The “Immunity Law” as it’s known was passed by the Republican led Tennessee General Assembly earlier. That law requires government offices and businesses to treat immunity from a previous COVID-19 infection as equal to getting vaccinated in their policies. The bill requires a letter from a licensed physician or certain lab test results as proof of “acquired immunity.” Governor Bill Lee declined to sign the bill stating concerns that the law would put businesses “in the situation where they aren’t able to make the decisions best for their business.” The immunity law became state law on Friday without the governor’s signature….it goes into effect immediately.
