Public Health Emergency Extended

Share this page

The Biden Administration announced it will extend the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) declaration. The last declaration was issued April 12, 2022, effective April 16 and set to expire July 15, 2022. The PHE has been in effect since January 27, 2020.

The Biden Administration previously has said it will give states 60 days’ notice before ending the emergency to allow sufficient time to prepare for changes. The PHE has increased the number of people eligible for Medicaid; allowed US regulators to use emergency powers to clear vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics for use against COVID-19 and allowed for flexibilities around telehealth services.
