Description: As COVID-19 continues to threaten public health, worldwide, and serves as a major concern for individuals, questions surrounding the health of those interacting with the public, on a daily basis, are at the forefront of our discourse. This begs the question: Is a statement falsely advising that a person has contracted COVID-19 defamatory? This program will examine the elements required to maintain a claim for defamation in the context of COVID-19. The discussion will examine the challenges of proving whether a person has been defamed, examine the history of the loathsome disease category of defamation per se and its applicability to COVID-19 and damages associated with a statement regarding a person contracting COVID-19. Participants will gain an understanding of the legal elements required to prove a claim for defamation as well as the hurdles to prevail on such a claim as it relates to the pandemic.
