Definition
This category concerns legal problems that might emerge during a public health emergency, like a pandemic or a quarantine (for example during the COVID-10 emergency). This includes unique problems that might arise when there are restrictions on leaving home, working, filing lawsuits, or using the court system; or when there are special protections for renters, workers, sick individuals, essential workers, vulnerable populations, or other people.
