COVID-19 PANDEMIC
FBI BACKGROUND CHECK EXTENSION
Prepared by the PSEA Legal Division
Updated as of May 12, 2020


On March 6, 2020, Governor Wolf declared a disaster emergency in order to help contain, prevent the spread of, and address the effects of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus that was ultimately declared by the World Health Organization to be a global pandemic. As part of the Commonwealth’s response, Governor Wolf has signed into law Act 18 of 2020.

Act 18 of 2020 amended the Child Protective Services Law (CPS Law) to, among other things, add a new Section 6387, entitled “Pandemic of 2020,” providing emergency relief to those individuals required to obtain FBI background check recertification under Section 6344.4 of the CPS Law, including school employees.
