The American Academy of PAs (AAPA) recently called on governors in all states to waive physician supervision or collaboration requirements for PAs (physician assistants) during a declared public health emergency or disaster through executive orders.

As of April 23, 2020, only seven states (Maine, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Louisiana, South Dakota, and Tennessee) have waived or suspended supervision requirements by executive order. The AAPA website contains a map that will be updated on a rolling basis as states continue to temporarily suspend or waive existing supervision and practice requirements for PAs.
