Description:
NYC was the epicenter of the first wave of the COVID pandemic in the United States. What were the legal challenges the City faced in responding to this widespread and unprecedented emergency? How did City lawyers creatively approach issues such as the enforcement of social distancing, clamping down on price-gouging, development of outdoor dining regime, the imposition of region-wide quarantine for travelers? What tools were available to disseminate guidance to policymakers and the public in times of rapid change?
