Greetings All,

 

Press release with additional details attached here.

 

On Saturday, March 21, 2020, Governor JB Pritzker announced the state has provided for out of state Physicians (MDs), Nurses (LPNs, RNs, and APRNs), Physician Assistants, and  Respiratory Care Therapists to work across state lines. In addition, the Governor highlighted efforts to allow for licenses with Inactive/nonrenewed license status to reinstate their licenses for a temporary period.

The Department has prepared a proclamation to allow out-of-state physicians, nurses, and physician assistants to provide care to Illinois residents as part of the Governor’s fight against COVID-19. Further, the Department has prepared four variances specifically related to Illinois nurses and physician assistants who currently are inactive or non-renewed. Finally, the Department also prepared a variance specifically related to physicians in inactive or expired status.

The Department continues to monitor COVID 19 developments and will provide additional guidance and action as necessary. Please see the Department COVID 19 website here.
