During the COVID-19 public health emergency, in order to ensure Massachusetts’ health care system had the capacity to address the pandemic, some health care services and procedures were limited or temporarily put on hold, while many services were conducted remotely using telehealth. Emergency services and other essential health and human services continued during this time.
Phase 4: As Massachusetts begins Phase 4, Part 1 on Monday, March 22, 2021, the Executive Office of Health and Human Services released a series of new guidance documents for health care and human services providers, which are outlined below. This guidance supersedes previously issued guidance in Phases 1, 2 and 3.
