The world is confronting the potentially deadly COVID-19 pandemic. Preliminary reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) indicate that the virus is primarily spread between people who are in close contact. The virus can also be spread before people show symptoms. The virus can remain alive on surfaces–such as court tables–for days. The pandemic has caused the President to issue a national declaration of emergency.
To slow the spread of the virus the CDC advises individuals to increase their physical distance from other people to about 6 feet. Id. Consequently, social gatherings, business conferences, sporting events, and religious ceremonies have been canceled or postponed across the nation.
