State and federal governments have taken various actions in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, including lockdowns and efforts to encourage social distancing; expanded unemployment insurance and other forms of economic stimulus; and efforts to expand testing and expedite development of vaccines and treatments. All the while, courts have addressed challengers to these efforts and have responded in their own ways.
