Renewal of Federal Public Health Emergency due to COVID

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra once again renewed the public health emergency (PHE) for COVID-19, effective July 20, 2021. The extension will continue all telehealth waivers and other flexibilities pursuant to this determination. As with previous determinations, the renewed PHE will end 90 days after its effective date on Monday, Oct. 18, 2021, unless it is further extended. The Biden Administration has indicated that it intends to continue renewing the COVID-19 PHE at least for the remainder of 2021 and to provide the healthcare community with 60 days' notice prior to allowing the PHE to lapse.
