The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has shared that effective December 6, 2021, the Department has reinstated all of ODP’s suspended regulations. A list of the regulations that were previously suspended and the date they were reinstated is available here.
Pursuant to Act 73 of 2021, the suspensions of various regulatory provisions under the state disaster emergency declaration were extended until March 31, 2022, unless sooner reinstated by the Department.
Please note that the current version of the COVID-19 At-A-Glance Guide reads that “the suspension of various regulatory provisions under the state disaster emergency declaration that are currently in effect and which were set to expire on September 30, 2021, are now extended until further notice.” This guidance is no longer accurate; again, all of ODP’s suspended regulations have been reinstated. The At-A-Glance guide will be updated to reflect this change in the near future.
If this action is cause for concern for any RCPA member, please contact Carol Ferenz for assistance.
