We (CMS) want(s) to thank you for your ongoing partnership throughout the COVID-19 response over the course of the last three years. Yesterday, HHS informed Governors that, Secretary Becerra renewed the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) for 90 days. Based on current trends regarding COVID-19, HHS is planning for this to be the final renewal and for the COVID-19 PHE to end on May 11, 2023. Notifying Governors yesterday that the PHE will end in 90 days fulfills the Department’s 2021 commitment to provide states 60 days’ notice.

The Department of Health and Human Services Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs will host a call on Monday, February 13 at 3:00 PM ET to discuss the end of the PHE. 

Date: Monday, February 13

Time: 3:00 PM ET

Please feel free to share this invitation widely with your network.  

Our experience and response to the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 remains a public health priority, but thanks to the Administration’s whole-of-government strategy, we are in a better place in our response than we were three years ago and can transition away from an acute emergency phase.

Over the next few months, we will move from our COVID-19 policies, and the current flexibilities enabled by the COVID-19 emergency declarations, into improving standards of care for patients, working closely with partners–including state agencies, industry, and advocates–to ensure an orderly transition.

To help you and your communities in your preparations for the end of the COVID-19 PHE, please see the fact sheet that we have made available that includes information on what will and will not be impacted by the end of the COVID-19 PHE.
