Executive Order 13924 of May 19, 2020, titled Executive Order on Regulatory Relief to Support Economic Recovery, directs all federal agencies to "combat the economic consequences of COVID-19 with the same vigor and resourcefulness with which the fight against COVID-19 itself has been waged," by:

  • "rescinding, modifying, waiving, or providing exemptions from regulations and other requirements that may inhibit economic recovery, consistent with applicable law and with protection of the public health and safety, with national and homeland security, and with budgetary priorities and operational feasibility
  • giving "businesses, especially small businesses, the confidence they need to re-open by providing guidance on what the law requires; by recognizing the efforts of businesses to comply with often-complex regulations in complicated and swiftly changing circumstances; and by committing to fairness in administrative enforcement and adjudication."

The executive order was published in the Federal Register at 85 FR 31353 (May 22, 2020).
