Guidance for Temporary Reassignment of State and Local Personnel during a Public Health Emergency

Section 201 of the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act of 2013 (PAHPRA), Public Law 113-5 amends section 319 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act to provide the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services with discretion to authorize the temporary reassignment of state, tribal, and local personnel during the time period when she has declared a federal public health emergency upon request by a state or tribal organization. 

The proposed Guidance for Temporary Reassignment of State and Local Personnel during a Public Health Emergency addresses that provision.  The period for public comment on this document has now closed.
