The Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) has suspended, with conditions, specific license regulations for Personal Care Homes (PCHs) and for Assisted Living Residences (ALRs). Also, OLTL has imposed restrictions on visitations and temporarily suspends annual inspections.
On March 6, 2020, Governor Wolf issued a Proclamation of Disaster Emergency (“the Disaster Proclamation”). In the Disaster Proclamation, the Governor suspended both regulations and regulatory statutes, if strict compliance with those provisions would prevent, hinder, or delay necessary action in coping with the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency.
OLTL is asking that all PCHs and ALRs review the guidance attached.
