Covid-19 & Criminal Justice: How Will the Pandemic End?

One of the things I'm looking forward to hearing about and discussing with my criminal justice students is their personal experiences regarding our time away from school as a result of social-distancing procedures.
 
In particular, I'd like to hear how students regard the social-distancing procedures societal wide and how it may affect our constitutional amendments, various freedoms, possible privacy violations, and general affects it has had on the criminal justice system.
 
I'd like students to read this article I thought was related to criminal justice issues as well as changes and challenges on a societal level and I'd like to hear students thoughts on them for when we return:
 
 
 
 
These are just some talking points to help guide students, but I am open to students bringing in their own viewpoint while in relation to the article:
  • Would requiring people to be tested for the virus violate any constitutional rights?
  • Is it appropriate for the police / government / society to require people to abide by certain societal rules?  Should there be punishments for those that do not follow rules?
  • What major challenges are there in addressing Covid-19 in the community?
  • Who is most at risk during this crisis?  How can we address it?
  • What effect has the pandemic had on crime in the united states?
  • Some foreign countries (UK, Italy) began to participate in "rationing patients who are unlikely to survive".  Older people are being overlooked in favor of younger people.  Is this against the law or does the threat of the pandemic negate certain rights to healthcare depending on age?
  • Is conducting a background check of an infected person and investigating the people they made contact with a violation of a person's privacy?
  • When is it appropriate to suspend certain rights or privacy protections?
  • Social-Distancing may be here to stay for the unforeseeable future.  How will your life be affected?
    (Children born during this pandemic are being referred to as Generation C, and will develop certain behaviors and practices far different than what we are used to)
  • If the economy goes into a recession, how might this affect criminal justice related issues in the united states?
  • What is the "herd mentality" mentioned in the article?  It may very well be the solution in the United States will take in curbing infections.  How is this problematic on a criminal justice related spectrum?  What kinds of violations of rights might it include?  How does a nation cope with 2.2 million Americans dead?
