No person, school official, or health care provider who acts in good faith reliance on a power of attorney for care of a minor child to enroll the child in school or to provide medical, dental, or mental health care, without actual knowledge of facts contrary to those authorized, is subject to criminal liability or to civil liability to any person, or is subject to professional disciplinary action, for that reliance.
