For those who know me, I have been referring to 2020 as the lost year. We have lost so much – lives, family time, social gatherings, routines, and our general way of life. Some of these changes are permanent, like the loss of those we love who have died, and others are temporary albeit longer than many of us initially thought and planned for. As this calendar year approaches its end, the COVID-19 numbers are increasing. State and local entities continue to issue protective measures. Questions about the implementation of those measures have arisen. This week, two of my colleagues have written blog posts for the School’s Coates’ Canons blog discussing remedies, including whether civil penalties may be imposed, for violations of state or local orders. I am sharing those posts with you here.

You can find more information about COVID-19 on the School’s Coronavirus/COVID-19 microsite, here.
Take care of yourselves and thank you for the work that you do.
