Title: Evacuation During a Public Health Emergency or Pandemic Health Crisis 

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is issuing a proposed rule to establish a new subpart Q within part 550 of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, which would amend, expand, and reorganize regulations that currently provide agencies with the authority to evacuate employees during a pandemic health crisis.  The revised regulations will provide agencies with the authority to evacuate an employee or groups of employees during either a public health emergency declaration or a pandemic health crisis.  The current authority to evacuate employees during a pandemic health crisis is found at 5 CFR 550.409.  This revision and reorganization of the regulations will enable OPM to capitalize on lessons learned from the (COVID-19) pandemic.
