COVID-19 Survey of Federal and State Price Gouging Laws – King & Spalding

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. government, many states, and even some counties and municipalities have invoked emergency powers and issued a variety of executive-level orders to protect the public health.
