COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Extended
The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) renewed the federal declaration of a public health emergency associated with the COVID-19 pandemic on Friday.
The declaration, which has been in effect since January 27, 2020, permits HHS to waive a range of regulatory requirements to allow health care providers greater flexibility, including modifying restrictions on telemedicine. No changes to existing waivers were announced.
