From the Document: "FEMA published a Temporary Final Rule (TFR) in the 'Federal Register' on Aug. 10, 2020 that allocated certain health and medical resources for domestic use to ensure needs are met for frontline healthcare workers and the American public during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. This TFR is an extension and modification a TFR published on April 10, 2020 which outlined the implementation of the President's Memorandum, 'Allocating Certain Scarce or Threatened Health and Medical Resources to Domestic Use.' This extension allows the TFR to remain in effect, with certain modifications, through Dec. 31, 2020. Modifications were made to the types of exports of PPE [personal protective equipment] that FEMA will review and may hold for domestic use to reflect changing circumstances. For example, shipments of certain classes of surgical gowns are now covered under the TFR, and may not leave the United States without explicit approval by FEMA."
