TEMPORARY EMERGENCY LICENSES
The Governor, by Executive Order, and the West Virginia Board of Respiratory Care by vote, has
suspended statute language and some rules to expedite licensure of Respiratory Therapists. These
suspensions are TEMPORARY in nature and all suspended requirements will have to be fulfilled
after the Declaration of Emergency Order is lifted or the license will expire. You may complete a Temporary Emergency Application found under reports and forms only if you plan to work as an RT in WV temporarily. See COVID-19 Temporary License and Changes for more information.
