COVID-19: NYS Governor Cuomo Extends Provisions Affecting Health Care Professionals

In response to the COVID-19 emergency disaster, Governor Cuomo has issued a number of executive orders impacting health care professionals. Previously, several executive orders temporarily modified and suspended provisions of the NYS education law to allow health care professionals not currently licensed or registered in New York State to provide services to COVID-19 patients.

On Tuesday, Executive Order 202.27 extended these provisions to June 4 so professionals without current NYS licensure or registration, including those with valid licenses in another state or Canada, can continue to provide services necessary for the state’s COVID-19 response.

A full list of health care professionals allowed to practice in New York State under this provision can be found on the NYS Office of the Professions website.
