Federal Public Health Emergency Related to COVID-19 to Continue Through January 11, 2023

The federal public health emergency related to COVID-19 will continue through January 11, 2023, since the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) did not issue the required 60-day termination notice of the current emergency period, which has been continuously extended since it was first implemented on January 27, 2020. The ongoing state of emergency has a significant impact on how the country’s hospitals, pharmacies and health care system can operate; it also allows Americans to receive free COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines.
