Tracking State Responses to Coronavirus

As state and local governments adapt to continually changing public health challenges presented by the novel coronavirus many are looking to see what measures have been implemented in other areas.

States and local jurisdictions are taking a wide range of actions to combat coronavirus, from appropriating emergency funds for public health efforts, to activating their national guard units, closing schools, restricting employee travel, and placing different limits on gatherings. Several organizations including The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and the National Governors Association (NGA) have useful tracking resources for state actions in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Below is a collection of resources that give an overview of the various actions.
