These businesses—particularly those in the services industries whose very nature requires physical interaction with their customers—should also consider taking steps to protect against possible future liability for coronavirus exposure claims (i.e., claims that a customer contracted coronavirus while on their premises or while an employee performed services at a customer’s home or business and—inadvertently—exposed customers). Even in uncertain times like these, sound legal principles can provide guidance to businesses and industries committed to continuing essential operations.
