Public Health Emergency remains in effect
The COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) will remain in effect at least until Jan. 11 and will likely be extended for another 90 days, as the U.S. government did not provide the promised 60-day notice to states or health care providers of its intent to lift the declaration. The continuation of the PHE allows for policies to remain in place, such as emergency authorizations of drugs, health care coverage through Medicare/Medicaid, and more. A notice of 60 days will be provided when it is decided to terminate the PHE.
