What started as a regionalized outbreak of a novel form of coronavirus has become a worldwide pandemic. COVID-19, a severe respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, has infected nearly 520,000 people around the world and caused profound disruptions to health infrastructures, national and international business, and countless other areas of modern life.
Throughout the United States, the pandemic has sparked a public health crisis and profound economic disruption, with many stores across the nation temporarily closing their doors and every business needing to adjust to a new economic landscape.
