Authorized by President Biden in January, the interim policy provides 100% federal funding for eligible costs and work conducted Jan. 21 through Sept. 30, 2021, including certain personal protective equipment, cleaning and disinfection, COVID-19 diagnostic testing, screening and temperature scanning, and temporary physical barriers for social distancing.
