Office of Health Facility Complaints (OHFC) Investigation, Background Study, and Enforcement Modifications

Emergency Executive Order 20-32, issued on April 8, 2020, adopted into Minnesota Session Laws, Chapter 74, Article 1, Section 13, allows the Commissioner of Health to temporarily delay, waive, or modify certain requirements so that the Minnesota Department of Health and providers can take necessary action to protect Minnesotans.

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Health Regulation Division (HRD) previously announced temporary modifications to certain requirements for Office of Health Facility Complaints investigation, background study, and enforcement activities. These modifications have been revised to indicate that, beginning in November 2020, MDH will require payment of fines assessed during the COVID-19 Peacetime Emergency. 

For additional information on these activity modifications, please visit the HRD Office of Health Facility Complaints website.
