Covid-19: The Difference Between the 2020 Coronavirus and the 2014 Ebola Situation (On-Demand)


In 2014, our presenter, Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, a Houston-based attorney who also teaches bioethics to medical students, wrote an article, Ebola Misdiagnosis Raises Liability Concerns and was quoted by MedPage Today as an expert in the article Point of Contention: The Law and Ebola Quarantines – How might court actions on the Ebola quarantines affect public health?

Today’s webinar focuses on both the similarities and the differences between the 2014 Ebola situation and the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic. Three particular areas will be covered: (1) HIPAA – disclosures of communicable diseases and teleworker requirements; (2) force majeure contractual provisions; and (3) quarantine. At the end of this one-hour program, participants should have a semblance of the following:

1. The parameters of disclosing a coronavirus diagnosis, as well as maintaining HIPAA compliance when requiring employees or contractors to work from home;

2. Force majeure contractual clauses and potential interpretations during a pandemic; and

3. Government-mandated quarantine – individual rights versus public health.
