US | White House to End COVID Emergency Declaration in May

On Monday, January 30, the White House announced it would officially end the COVID-19 national and public health emergencies on May 11. The Biden administration has pushed back against calls to end the emergencies sooner or more abruptly to prevent  “wide-ranging chaos and uncertainty throughout the health care system.”

The end of COVID emergency declarations will also end the Title 42 policy at the US Southern border. Title 42 is public health code that was implemented at the beginning of the pandemic that would allow border security to quickly expel migrants who were without the required documents.
