Status of State COVID-19 Emergency Orders


Last Updated: July 1, 2020

The following tracker provides the status of state and territory COVID-19 emergency orders. The purpose of this tracker is to share information about the current status of state COVID-19 emergency orders and information related to types of orders issued, methods of renewal, and overall duration. The chart includes links to initial emergency orders as well as the most recent/current order in place.

Please note this list may not be exhaustive, information may be out of date, and not every type of order may be represented. Please see state-specific statutes for more information on emergency orders and applicable renewal requirements. NGA staff will continue to track state emergency orders in response to COVID-19 and update this document. Additional NGA trackers include public health criteria in reopening plans, state actions regarding business reopenings, and state education reopening policies.
