This textbook surveys the major legal issues emanating from the policy responses to Covid-19 in the United States, with an emphasis on federalism, administrative law, and state and local government.
The Covid-19 pandemic led to unprecedented policy responses from the various levels and organs of government in the United States, as well as from private parties. Business, school, and church closures, mask mandates, employer and university vaccine mandates, vaccine passports to visit movie theaters and restaurants — this panoply of responses changed the world many of us lived in and led to widespread and hotly contested litigation in America’s federal and state courts. In the first and only text of its kind, with carefully chosen case excerpts and summary information, The Law of Covid-19 highlights the key legal issues contested throughout the pandemic. Whether as a retrospective on what Covid wrought, a primer for future pandemics, or a supplement to a more general public health course, this text will help prepare you and your students for a world that will never be the same.

Key Features:
  • The Law of Covid-19 (“LC-19”) features carefully chosen and edited cases about public health authority at the federal and state levels.
  • LC-19 focuses on the use of emergency authority by governors and mayors, including its impact on public employment and civil rights.
  • LC-19 includes information on the federal and state health bureaucracies, including detailed recounting of the authorization and approval of the Covid-19 vaccines and boosters.
Professors and students will benefit from:
  • Organized discussion of the relevant sources of emergency and administrative authority at the federal and state levels.
  • Thought-provoking questions and case notes that situate the relevant legal issues within the larger social and political context.
  • A willingness to consider multiple perspectives, including those questioning whether the policy and legal response to Covid-19 may have been too draconian.
