-For new applicants, all in-person portions of the application process shall be delayed in order to comply with the Governor's social distancing guidelines. This includes the interviews, fingerprinting and photographs.
-For licensees who apply for a renewal prior to the expiration of the their license (and who received a receipt acknowledging same), their license shall remain valid until the agency approves or denies it. As a result, delaying the in-person processes of the application will not prejudice these licensees.

- There is no licensing fee for individuals who are seventy years of age and over.
