Board Statement re COVID-19 Misinformation:
Important License Renewal Update, effective February 24, 2021:
To protect the public by ensuring that physicians, physician assistants and nurses are qualified and properly licensed, Governor Mills has signed Executive Order 33 FY20/21 which repeals that section of Executive Order 16 FY19/20 which had authorized the extension of licenses due to expire during the State of Emergency. Section 1(E) of that order is now repealed. Osteopathic physicians and physician assistants working with them whose licenses have been extended due to the State of Emergency must renew their licenses by March 31, 2021.
