Following an assessment of the current status of the COVID-19 public health emergency and the situation in congregate settings where noncitizens seeking to enter the United States are processed and held, CDC has determined that an Order remains appropriate at this time for all ``covered noncitizens'' as defined in the order. Unaccompanied noncitizen children, already excepted under a July 16, 2021 order, remain excepted from the order's coverage. In addition, CDC is continuing an exception for individuals on a case-by-case basis, based on the totality of the circumstances, and is incorporating an additional exception for programs approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that incorporate appropriate COVID-19 mitigation protocols as recommended by CDC.
