On Feb. 28, the Emergency Medical Services Authority updated its authorization on its website to allow approval of out-of-state health care personnel to practice in California until June 30.  

For details, see the “Authorization of Out-Of-State Medical Personnel” section of the website. 

CHA continues to engage the California Department of Public Health, which has stated it will formally extend its space waiver until June 30 by revising All Facilities Letter (AFL) 20-26.11.  Once the revised AFL is released, CHA will share it with members. 

Both departments were recently granted authority to extend these waivers with the release of the governor’s executive order on Feb. 25, which extended these and other authorities from March 31 until June 30.
