Suspended Regulations Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Issued: August 6, 2021; Last Updated: July 1, 2022;

Pursuant to Act 30 of 2022, the suspensions of various regulatory provisions under the state disaster emergency declaration were extended until October 31, 2022, unless sooner reinstated by the Department. 
 

Effective July 1, 2022, the Department has reinstated a number of suspended regulations, in whole or in part.  A list of the regulations that were suspended in whole or in part and their current status is available below

In addition, some regulations were reinstated prior to September 30, 2021 and are not subject to Act 73 of 2021. Those regulations are also designated in the chart below.

Please note that Act 30 of 2022 only affects state regulations that were suspended under the state disaster emergency declaration and were to be reinstated on June 30, 2022. Federal flexibilities provided through the federal public health emergency will remain in place as long as the federal public health emergency remains in effect. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) extended the federal public health emergency on January 14, 2022 to April 16, 2022 (90 days).  Please visit www.phe.gov/emergency regularly for updates on the federal public health emergency.  Also, in a letter to state governors dated January 22, 2021, the HHS Secretary indicated that HHS will provide states with 60-days' notice before terminating the federal declaration.
