The COVID-19 crisis has changed the lives of all Americans. With mandated social-distancing, restrictions on in-person worship and church services, closures of most non-essential businesses in the domestic economy, and limitations on travel overseas and between states, some wonder what gives the government the ability to restrict our individual liberty and when it should stop.
