ID : 1529   
« back to classes page
The rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution are not absolute and can be limited in certain circumstances. Using the COVID-19 pandemic as illustration, this lecture will set out the legal framework for two of the most important government actions in fighting a pandemic: so-called stay at home orders and health-related surveillance, including contact tracing. The presenters will discuss issues of emergency authorities, privacy rights, federalism and separation of powers, with reference to both U.S. federal and Virginia law.
