Peacetime emergency ends July 1: Existing COVID-19 waivers expire no later than Aug. 30 (11:59 p.m.)
The COVID-19 peacetime emergency ends on July 1, 2021. All existing COVID-19 waivers and modifications expire no later than Aug. 30, 2021 (11:59 p.m.), and regulated individuals and facilities must return to Minnesota statute and rule compliance by Aug. 30, 2021 (11:59 p.m.). MDH may provide an earlier expiration date or shorter grace period. Regulated individuals and facilities are strongly encouraged to begin planning for this transition as soon as possible and should contact the appropriate MDH division with questions.

MDH’s Health Regulation Division is working with federal authorities to provide additional guidance. Generally, in instances where a Minnesota statute or rule is more prescriptive, the Minnesota statute will prevail.
