Notification of Proposed Permanent Rule Amendment: 10A NCAC 41A .0212 – Handling and Transportation of Bodies

The North Carolina Commission for Public Health (CPH) is proposing to permanently amend rule 10A NCAC 41A .0212 to set out the proper precautions to prevent infection in the handling and transportation of the bodies of persons infected with COVID-19 and require notification of those precautions. These changes were previously made under emergency and temporary rulemaking. However, a permanent amendment is needed to ensure that these changes do not expire from the NC Administrative Code. The proposed effective date of this rule amendment is October 1, 2021.

A public hearing will be held on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. The public hearing will be held by teleconference. You may participate in the public hearing by dialing 919-715-0769 (no access code).
