At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, all 50 governors declared a statewide state of emergency. By declaring a state of emergency, governors gained new powers and flexibility to react to the quickly changing environment as well as tap into federal resources. While these have waned with vaccination efforts, they may pick up again as the delta variant spreads. More information on each state's plans can be found in the "State of Emergency Declaration" section of MultiState's COVID-19 Policy Dashboard.
