COVID-19 State Emergency Response

Suspended/Waived Practice Requirements

This map shows the states that have taken action to suspend or waive certain practice requirements for PAs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be updated on a rolling basis. Eight states (Maine, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Louisiana, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Virginia) previously issued executive orders that waived or suspended PA supervision requirements. Currently, executive orders in Louisiana and New Jersey remain in effect.

Note: As states revise, terminate, or issue emergency responses due to the ongoing nature of the pandemic, AAPA encourages readers to visit the applicable state website(s) of the issuing governor, mayor, regulatory board, or state agency to determine if executive and board orders or other guidance documents remain in effect or have been modified.
