Responding to Pandemics: Legal and Clinical Issues

With increasing numbers of cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) globally and in the United States, on January 31st Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Alex Azar declared a national public health emergency. The emergency declaration of the HHS authorizes additional resources, enhanced federal powers, inter-jurisdictional coordination, and waivers of specific regulations. During crises, government has a special responsibility to thoughtfully balance public health protections and civil liberties.

This special lecture, co-hosted by the Illinois Health and Hospital Association, will bring together the perspectives of public health officials, lawyers, clinicians and academics to discuss questions such as:

  • How do public health systems around the globe and in the United States detect and respond to threats of pandemic disease?
  • What laws and regulations are applicable in a pandemic disease outbreak?
  • What laws and regulations must employers, including healthcare facilities, be aware of as they prepare their business contingency plans?
  • What rights do people infected with pandemic diseases have in regard to their privacy and treatment?
