Governor Acts on CMS Plea for Civil Liability Protection

April 2, 2020

Dear Illinois Physicians:

Your Chicago Medical Society urged the governor a week ago to grant tort immunity to physicians during this unprecedented outbreak across our city, state, and nation.

We are pleased to inform you that Governor J.B. Pritzker has issued an executive order granting all physicians working at the coronavirus pandemic frontlines immunity from civil liability. The order extends throughout the public health emergency.

Attached is our letter to Governor Pritzker, his executive order and the Chicago Sun Times article highlighting our efforts.

The Chicago Medical Society Executive Committee is meeting on a daily basis to ensure the safety of our physicians and address the resource needs.

We are continuously advocating for you and especially those working at the frontlines of care. Feel free to share your issues and concerns.

A. Jay Chauhan, DO, FAOCO
President, Chicago Medical Society

Tariq Butt, MD
President-Elect, Chicago Medical Society

Vemuri Murthy, MD
Chairman of the Board, Chicago Medical Society
