HHS Extends COVID-19 Public Health Emergency

Effective Oct. 23, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar issued a renewal of determination that a public health emergency (PHE) exists as a result of the continued effects of COVID-19.

The PHE determination has been in place since Jan. 31 and previously was renewed April 21 and July 23.

We encourage all members to visit the America’s Essential Hospitals COVID-19 emergency declarations and executive orders resource page and the general coronavirus resource page for more information about the outbreak.

Contact Senior Director of Policy Erin O’Malley at or 202.585.0127 with questions.
