- In response to the state of emergency created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Maryland Insurance Association issued temporary changes regarding the workers' compensation rates that are set for employers.
- The Pennsylvania legislature began to address legislation unrelated to COVID-19, including HB 943, a bill that would prohibit "gag clauses" in the state's PBM contracts.
