The recent TDA post
highlights when your practice can reopen to non-emergency appointments.
And the date is approaching! Currently Governor Abbott has a ban in place
on non-emergency care through April 21, 2020 plus a shelter-at-home order in
effect through April 30, 2020. If he does not extend that, and you
are in a county that does not have a later shelter-in-place order in effect,
you could reopen as early as May 1st.
Here are the current
shelter-in-place expiration dates for some of the most populated Texas
counties, all currently set at 4/30 or earlier. If those orders aren’t
extended beyond 4/30 then May 1st becomes a real possibility for
Dallas – April 30th
Denton – April 30th
Tarrant – April 30th
Harris – April 30th
Travis – May 8th
Williamson – April 30th
Texas is blessed to be less
affected than other states so far, and we pray that continues, and people stay
healthy. But Texas has a great spirit of industriousness and a robust
economy. Our workers are well…ready to get back to work. We’ll be
glad when it’s safe to do so.
