The COVID-19 Pandemic: Legal, Constitutional, and Public Health Issues

The COVID-19 public health crisis has affected all aspects of American life, altering travel, work, education – even everyday activities like buying groceries. Lawmakers and public health officials at both the state and federal level quickly implemented emergency orders at the onset of the crisis to stabilize the spread of the disease and balance the precautions that public health and safety demand with recognition of constitutional, economic, and liberty interests. Now, after months of living with COVID-19, the efficacy and utility of these policies, and their corollary legal, constitutional, and public health impacts, can be deliberately examined.
