HHSC Long-Term Care Regulation published revised COVID-19 Expansion of Reopening Visitation Emergency Rules. They are for Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability or Related Conditions program providers. HHSC removed the following language:
“If an executive order or other direction is issued by the Governor of Texas, the President of the United States, or another applicable authority, that is more restrictive than this rule or any minimum standard relating to a facility, the facility must comply with the executive order or other direction.”
The rules became effective Feb. 17, 2022.
