On June 18, 2020, the Indiana State Department of Health announced that it has extended all blanket waivers issued for long-term care facilities, including comprehensive care facilities and residential care facilities, for an additional ninety (90) day period.  Each blanket waiver is therefore effective through at least mid-September.  Updated charts summarizing the blanket waivers for comprehensive care facilities and residential care facilities issued to date and listing the new effective time period for each blanket waiver can be found below.



On July 23, 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services also announced that the federal public health emergency will be extended for an additional ninety (90) day period effective July 25, 2020.  The extension ensures the corresponding extension of the Section 1135 Waiver through late October, which includes regulatory waivers for staff training requirements and the three-day stay.
