It would be a worker's comp claim in SC. And there are some, but it is hard to prove because you have to show a pretty good case you got it through your employment. And when it's bad everywhere, well....
I think McMastuh signed a new law giving basically giving immunity to employers unless the claimant proves by clear and convincing evidence that the covered entity or covered individual caused the injury or damage by:
(a) grossly negligent, reckless, wilful, or intentional misconduct; or (b) a failure to make any attempt to adhere to public health guidance.
The odds are good that someone would win a case, even here in Laborcamp, SC, but only if they had the receipts.
Basically the case law for covid claims are the same as occupational disease claims. You have to show you got sick at work basically, and that's hard to prove. But I've had a few covid death claims so far, usually tied to documented outbreaks with the employer.
That law from Gubnuh Mack Master was for civil litigation against companies. That being said, it opens up a heck of an opportunity to sue the state of SC, school districts, etc. since they passed a law outlawing the following public health measures.
