Public Comment Period for Proposed Rule Language Regarding Compliance with COVID-19 Executive Orders

Tuesday, September 1, 2020

The Health Licensing Office has filed a proposed Oregon Administrative Rule with the Oregon Secretary of State, which has been published in the September 2​020, Oregon Bulletin. The rule clarifies the potential consequences of an authorization holder failing to comply with an Executive Order issued by the Governor or failing to comply with state agency guidance during a declared disaster or emergency.

This proposed rule language will replace temporary rule 331-020-0078, that took effect on May 15, 2020.

You are invited to review the proposed rule and submit comments from September 1 through September 29th at 9 a.m. Comments will not be accepted, nor considered, if received after 9 a.m. on September 29, 2020. Written comments can be submitted by way of postal mail to:

Attn: Anne Thompson
Health Licensing Office
1430 Tandem Ave. NE, Suite 180

Salem, OR 97301-2192

The proposed rule language is expected to become effective October 1, 2020.
