I don't own gloomhaven yet but while playing the kickstarter campaign on TTS i came with this question. Since giant vipers have the 'poison' trait in monster stat sheet are they also immune to poison negative condition?

No. Literally has nothing to do with immunity.

Bosses have immunity, other monsters have traits that always add a status to their attacks. Bosses = immunity.

Bosses may have the immunity. I've not seen all the bosses, they do have differing immunities, they could for instance be able to poison you yet not be immune to poison effects.

No. I think you missed the entire point of my post: the symbols on a boss's card are immunities, the symbols on normal/elite monsters are traits.

Bosses do not have traits-- can a boss have a special ability that causes a status? Yes, but the OP is asking about traits and you did not mention anything about an ability.

Coincidentally... (very minor spoiler, no boss names)
Spoiler (click to reveal)
the boss that has a Special 2 that poisons and wounds, is also immune to poison and wounds

No I understood what you meant, however your post could be read as "Bosses have immunity to poison" or even "All status effects".

That would be quite the inference.
