The U.S. Supreme Court Closed to the Public
The President of the United States is expected to declare a national emergency over the coronavirus. The World Health Organization has already announced that the COVID-19 outbreak is a global pandemic. The impact on the US Legal system has been immediate and severe. The U.S. Supreme Court will be closed to the public until further notice “out of concern for the health and safety of the public and Supreme Court employees,” the court said Thursday, though the building will remain open for official business.
