License Renewal Requirements During a Declared Emergency
When a civil preparedness emergency or a public health emergency declaration is in effect, the Commissioner of the Department of Public Health can suspend requirements for renewal of licenses that would otherwise be required. This suspension can extend for up to 6 months after the emergency is declared over. No license will expire during the suspension but after the end of the emergency these license will be required to be renewed.
Temporary suspension of licensure, license renewal and inspection requirements upon declaration of a civil preparedness emergency or public health emergency
(b) Upon the declaration of a civil preparedness emergency pursuant to section 28-9 or a public health emergency pursuant to section 19a-131a, the Commissioner of Public Health may suspend any of the requirements for renewal of any license, as defined in section 4-166, that would otherwise be required to be renewed by the department pursuant to the general statutes or regulations. Any such suspension of the requirements for renewal of a license may extend for the duration of the declared emergency and for up to six months following the date the emergency is declared to be over. Any license not renewed by the department shall not expire during the period of the emergency and during the six-month period following the date that the emergency is declared to be over. Not later than six months from the date the emergency is declared to be over, the commissioner shall reinstate license renewal requirements that had been suspended. Any license, for which the commissioner had suspended license renewal requirements, that is not renewed in the six-month period following the date of the resumption of the license renewal requirements shall expire, unless the commissioner, for good cause shown, extends this period of time. The commissioner may, for good cause shown, grant no more than two ninety-day extensions.
