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 December 31, 2020. In order to avoid the expiration of your license, you may take one of the following two actions:

  1. 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 still within the window for late renewal, you may take one of the following two actions:

  1. 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.  To take this action, click here.
  2. Log on to Mass. Department of Public Health Online Licensing and complete a late renewal.  The late fee will be waived.  You will still be required to pay the regular license renewal fee and meet licensure renewal continuing education requirements.  This renewed license will expire in ordinary course.
