HHSC Retires ALF COVID-19 Response Plan and COVID-19 FAQs

Following the repeal of the Assisted Living Facility COVID-19 Emergency Rules, HHSC Long-term Care Regulation (LTCR) has retired the COVID-19 Response Plan for ALFs and the ALF Frequently Asked Questions document, effective Jan. 10, 2023.

Facilities can obtain guidance along with resources for infection prevention, control measures and Personal Protective Equipment through the Infection Prevention and Control Measures for Common Infections in LTC Facilities (PDF) and Infection Control Basics & Personal Protective Equipment for Essential Caregivers (PDF) documents published by HHSC. These resources can also be found on the ALF Provider Portal page.

Providers may email LTCR Policy with questions.
