It’s time to end the public health emergency
In September 2022—months ago—President Biden declared that the pandemic is over. But one thing has remained unchanged: the official designation of a public health emergency on COVID-19. Every 90 days since early 2020, the public health emergency has needed an official renewal to continue. Every 90 days, it quietly receives that renewal, regardless of case numbers or spending totals or public input.
It’s adding up. More workers have remained out of the workforce, taxpayer spending keeps going out the door on government programs, and dependence on government grows greater every day.
It’s past time to end the public health emergency.
