Privacy Norms and the COVID-19 Pandemic

21 Wake Forest J. Bus. & Intell. Prop. L. 272

The exponential growth of COVID-19 cases left almost no aspect of
American life untouched. With new modes of conducting business and
daily life taking shape over the course of months, weeks, days, or even
hours, old norms gave way to the demands of living in the exigency of
the public health crisis. Amidst an economic recession, protests against
racial injustice, and a presidential election (as well as the decennial
Census and more personal events like graduations, weddings, and
birthdays), the underlying rationale and continuing necessity of these
new norms sometimes received little to no scrutiny. This Article looks
at a class of new norms that arose in the age of COVID-19, namely
privacy norms.
