When do COVID-19 Exceptions End?
Currently, the COVID-19 Emergency Federal Declaration is set to end in sometime in August which means the exceptions with the declaration will end about 6 months following that or about July, 2021. The exceptions will all end if the COVID-19 Emergency Declaration is not extended. In the meantime, individuals, families and advocates are working to bring many of those exceptions into our regulations to help improve our system of care for waiver recipients. Watch the site for more to come on making these important changes permanent for individuals and families.
