COVID-19: US State Lock-Down Policies - Dates of Implementation

The dataset with implementation dates of states’ lock-down policies from our working paper “The COVID-19 Pandemic: Government vs. Community Action Across the United States” can be found here. For the county-level dataset, see this webpage.

NB only emergency declarations, business and school closures and stay-at-home policies are updated until May 15. When a policy was implemented after 12pm on a given date, we assign it to the next date.
