Legal Responses to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Many units of government at all levels (federal, state, and local) have issued, and continue to issue, legal responses to the coronavirus epidemic, and some states have laws pre-dating the epidemic but that have become more relevant, such as quarantine statutes and requirements for paid sick leave. This goal of this guide it to provide links to primary sources and high-quality summaries to these. At the federal agency level, this guide focuses on agencies related to the provision of healthcare. This guide highlights summaries of state laws across the states, and additionally provides information on California state and local responses. This guide also highlights a small number of current awareness sources for tracking legal and policy responses.
