Experts predicted that communities in the United States would see a peak in first-wave COVID-19 infections by mid-April. As the country moves to slow and track the spread of the novel coronavirus, states are implementing public safety measures that have altered much of civic life. David Cole, national legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union, joins the pod to discuss how this pandemic has exposed U.S. civil liberties and what steps the government can take to protect them.
