US to end Covid-19 emergency declarations on May 11

Joe Biden’s administration announced this Monday (30) that it will end the Covid-19 emergency declarations on May 11, almost three years after the United States imposed comprehensive measures to contain the spread of the disease.

The Covid-19 national emergency and public health emergency (PHE) were implemented in 2020 by the administration of then-President Donald Trump. Biden has repeatedly extended the measures, set to expire in the coming months.

The White House Office of Budget and Management (OMB) said in a statement that the statements will be extended again until May 11 and then closed.

“This slowdown is in line with the government’s previous commitments to give at least 60 days’ notice of the end of the PHE,” the OMB said in a statement.

In another note, the OMB reported that Biden will veto a proposed bill in the United States Congress that eliminates the mandatory vaccination against Covid-19 for health service providers working in certain federal programs.
