Public Health Emergency Declaration Renewed
Recently, HHS Secretary Xavier Beccera extended the national public health emergency declaration for COVID-19. The HHS Secretary must renew the declaration every ninety days for urgent flexibilities – including flexibilities granted to the WIC program – to remain active. The recent extension of the public health emergency declaration for COVID-19 ensures that WIC flexibilities for service delivery are now in place through at least mid-August. Many WIC clinics are continuing to offer services remotely.
