Governor Bryan Asks Senate To Extend COVID-19 State of Emergency For 2 Months

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — On Saturday May 1, Governor Albert Bryan sent down proposed legislation to Senate President Donna Frett-Gregory requesting a 60-day extension to the current State of Emergency he proclaimed in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The current State of Emergency extension is set to expire on Friday, May 7, and Governor Bryan is requesting a extension to remain in effect until July 6, 2021.

By law, the 34th Legislature has five days to consider Governor Bryan’s request, or the extension automatically goes into effect for an additional 30 days if the Senate takes no action on the Governor’s proposed legislation.
