Emergency Rulemaking

By Melissa Vuotto, Paralegal Supervisor

On April 15, 2020, the Commission voted to approve another emergency rule, 21 NCAC 58G .0106, to further address the ongoing public health emergency. On March 26, 2020, two prior emergency rules went into effect: NCAC 58G .0104 and .0105. These two rules required schools and course sponsors to cancel or suspend all in-person courses and provided options for online delivery of courses. The new emergency rule, G .0106, extends restrictions on in-person courses until June 30, 2020, and allows schools, course sponsors, and education providers to offer the Update Course as a synchronous distance-learning course.
