Dear Friends,

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published interim guidelines for COVID-19 antibody testing.

  • The CDC updated the guidance for preventing the spread of COVID-19 in retirement communities and independent living facilities.
  • The CDC also released guidance for communities of faith as they begin re-opening.

A coalition that includes The MITRE Corporation and Microsoft launched “The Fight Is In Us” to help recruit individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 who want to donate their blood plasma.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released updated guidance to Medicare Advantage Organizations, Part D sponsors, and Medicare-Medicaid plans regarding Part D cost sharing.

Texas Update
Texas Department of State Health Services updated guidance documents for churches, retailers, water parks, and adult recreational sports.

Until next time, this is your doctor's note.

Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D.
