The Texas Department of State Health Services has adopted rules for epinephrine auto-injector policies for certain entities and youth facilities.

The rules allow the following to adopt policies voluntarily for the maintenance, administration and disposal of unassigned epinephrine auto-injectors.

  • Child-care facilities
  • Employer-based child-care operations
  • Shelter care operations
  • Listed family homes

Child Care Regulation plans to propose rules in Title 26 Texas Administrative Code later in 2021 to support the new DSHS rules. CCR will notify you once the draft rules are posted for informal public comment.
