COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Declaration Renewed
HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra renewed the COVID-19 public health emergency declaration, effective July 15th. The declaration gives health care providers and State and Territorial health departments continued flexibility to respond to the pandemic. The first U.S. COVID-19 public health emergency declaration was signed in January 2020 and has been renewed every 90 days per law. HHS will provide no less than 60 days’ notice before the termination of the declaration.
