However, a couple of weeks ago they came out and said, just kidding, we’re going to extend it out another 90 days. Great stuff, right? So now this new extension will be bringing us out into mid-July for when the new expiration for the public health emergency declaration is supposed to be set. So that’s a great thing. As a result of this, this allows the States to continue sending out those bonus benefits ongoing if they just so decide to do so. Now, I totally recognize there are a handful of States out there that have canceled the bonus benefit. Not a good thing, right? Especially right now. However, more States may be reinstating them, and or more States may be coming out relatively soon. Here announcing the extra bonus benefit. However, I do want to give you the list that was just announced of all the different States that will be sending these out here relatively quickly. So I do want to give you this list.
