In the midst of flu season, the news over the past few weeks has been dominated by a novel (new) coronavirus, which originated in the city of Wuhan in the Hubei province of China in December 2019. The virus is known as “SARS-CoV-2" and the disease it causes is called “coronavirus disease 2019” or COVID-19. Learn more about the novel coronavirus, its situation in the United States and the latest news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The Trump administration declared a public health emergency in January and several federal agencies have been involved in the U.S. response to the outbreak. For the latest updates on the federal response to COVID-19, see NCSL's webpage on Daily Announcements from Federal Agencies. 

To date, there have been more than 975,000 reported cases of coronavirus and more than 50,000 deaths globally. You can keep updated on the number of confirmed cases of and deaths from COVID-19 in the United States using regularly updated webpages from state health departments and the CDC.

State Action

As the federal government leads the national response to COVID-19, state and local health departments stand on the front lines. State or public health emergency declarations have been issued in each state and territory, including the District of Columbia. For the latest updates on national guard activations, restricted travel and other state-specific resources and actions, see the National Governors Association webpage.

State health officials continue to work with the CDC, federal authorities and other health agencies to ensure a collaborative response. State lawmakers may direct constituents to local, state and federal health resources to keep everyone informed. Meanwhile, several states are taking legislative action to mitigate the effects of an outbreak.

At least thirty-five states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico have introduced legislation to support state action related to COVID-19. Several resolutions adjourn legislative sessions or adopt temporary rules to allow governing bodies to meet or vote electronically. Many bills appropriate funds or focus on health topics such as insurance coverage, medical costs or telehealth services. Others involve paid leave, unemployment benefits, guidance for schools, or workforce protections for those in quarantine or isolation. Some bills address price gouging or eligibility for public services, temporarily prohibit evictions and ensure utility services, or extend certain legal deadlines. Thirty-two states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico have enacted or adopted legislation.
