State Action on Coronavirus

Local and state public health officials wield extraordinary powers in emergency situations such as the current coronavirus outbreak. They can close schools and private businesses.

They can suspend medical licensing laws and protect doctors from liability claims. And they can quarantine or isolate people who might infect others.
