In accordance with COVID-19 Order No. 41, signed by Governor Baker on June 26, 2020, if your license was due to expire on or after March 10, 2020, and you have not yet renewed your license, your license will now expire on June 30, 2021. In order to avoid the expiration of your license, you may take one of the following two actions:
- Log on to Mass. Department of Public Health Online Licensing and renew your license as normal. Any applicable late fee will be waived.
- Submit a paper renewal application for the COVID-19 State of Emergency only. This renewal has no fee and you will not need to meet renewal requirements. The renewal will expire 90 days after the termination of the State of Emergency. Please see the COVID Licensing page above for your Board to locate the required documents.
If your license expired prior to March 10, 2020 and you are not within the window for late renewal, you may take one of the following two actions:
- Submit a reactivation application for the COVID-19 State of Emergency only. This reactivation has no fee and you will not need to meet reactivation requirements. The reactivation will expire 90 days after the termination of the State of Emergency. To take this action, click here.
- Submit a routine reactivation application. You will still be required to pay the regular license renewal fee but any required back-cycle fees and late fees will be waived. All other requirements must be met. This reactivated license will expire in ordinary course. To take this action, click here.
