Welcome to the fifth issue of the 2021 edition of Unprecedented. After our last issue published, the United States marked a grim milestone: 500,000 people dead from COVID-19, with about one in three Americans knowing someone within that group. At the same time, the pace of vaccinations is reaching nearly three million people per day, and the CDC is now advising that fully vaccinated individuals can gather indoors in small groups. Some states, notably Texas, have taken an even more aggressive approach, announcing that they will be fully reopening. In this way, a sense of normality is beginning to return even as we wrestle with COVID-19’s staggering impact. That impact is still to be determined in the litigation context, with cases continuing to be filed on issues ranging from whether employers can mandate vaccinations to whether insurance carriers are obligated to cover losses from the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us to read further on these and other issues.
