COVID-19 Healthcare Partner Resources

On May 11, 2023 OHA filed a temporary suspension of OAR 333-019-1010, COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for Healthcare Providers and Healthcare Staff in Healthcare Settings.

While state-level COVID-19 vaccination requirement for staff in health care settings was suspended on May 11, 2023, facilities and agencies subject to regulation of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are still required to ensure staff vaccination to comply with federal recommendations. CMS indicated in their Guidance for the Expiration of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE), QSO-23-13-ALL, issued on May 1, 2023, that new CMS guidance will be issued soon. The current CMS vaccination requirement, as reflected in CMS’s Revised Guidance for Staff Vaccination Requirements, QSO-23-02-ALL, issued on October 26, 2022, will remain in place until CMS issues new guidance.

Health care providers may be required to wear masks in compliance with federal laws. For facilities subject to CMS regulations, visit OHA’s Health Care Regulation and Quality Improvement webpage: On this webpage, you will find updated memos for facilities and agencies subject to CMS regulations:
