Abstract

This article discusses the international concern over religious freedom during the coronavirus pandemic. Many places of worship have had restrictions placed on them during the COVID-19 crisis. Additionally, there is a concern that certain countries might use the pandemic to place more restrictions on religious minorities. The US Commission on International Freedom (USCIRF) and their role in preventing abuses of power and religious liberty are discussed in the article.
