Texas Medical Board Announces New Emergeny Rules

The Texas Medical Board has announced new emergency rules that went into effect today, May 1st, at 12:00am. Among the provisions was this requirement:

All physicians providing patient care or engaging in an in-person patient encounter in medical and healthcare practices, offices, and facilities, other than hospitals as defined under Chapter 241 of the Texas Health & Safety Code, shall post a COVID-19 Minimum Standards of Safe Practice Notice (COVID-19 Notice), delineating the minimum standards of safe practice described in this subsection, in each public area and treatment room or area of the office, practice, or facility. (bold face added)

Earlier today, TMB posted on its website a copy of the notice that physicians can print and place in their offices as required. It is available here.
