At the start of the COVID-19 crisis, the vast majority of states across the country implemented “stay at home” orders requiring the closure or severe restriction of non-essential business activities. States gradually eased those restrictions over the following months and issued phased “reopening” orders that outlined limits and safety requirements for businesses to resume in-person operations. More recently, several states have suspended reopening or even reimposed restrictions on businesses in response to rising infection numbers. Additionally, many jurisdictions have enacted laws or issued orders protecting businesses from tort liability related to COVID-19 or expanding workers’ compensation laws to allow coverage for claims related to COVID-19. This table contains a link to the respective orders and councils for each state. Links to known local commands are also included but are only updated once a week.
