Mask Exemptions: The Current Confusion
Friday, 17 September 2021
As can’t be avoided once you turn on your radio or television, mask mandates (and now the issue surrounding vaccine mandates) have created polarizing positions in our communities. In Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis issued an Executive Order on May 3, 2021, invalidating all local Executive Orders mandating mask wearing, citing the new law passed in the 2021 Legislative Session, the Parents’ Bill of Rights, allowing parents to make this decision.  Since then, a Leon County judge (J. Cooper) struck down the Governor’s order restricting School Boards from imposing mask mandates, yet not long thereafter, the First District Court of Appeal reversed his decision and put the mandate back in place until such time as it undergoes further review. This issue likewise made it to the Federal courts where a judge declined to block the ban on mask mandates. At this time, the Governor’s Executive Order precluding mask mandates is in place.

Thursday, 20 May 2021

Can a DC Complete the DOH COVID-19 Determination of Extreme Vulnerability Form?
Wednesday, 17 March 2021
DCs are not authorized to complete the Extreme Vulnerability form pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order 21-47 and pursuant to the Department of Health Emergency Order 64DER21-3.  Only those licensed under Chapter 458 and 459 can give the vaccine and determine extreme vulnerability.  
CE Update - Online, Virtual, Live Options Are Back for This Biennium
Friday, 12 March 2021
Today the Board of Chiropractic Medicine met to determine the status of the lapsed Emergency Rule that had allowed all live or virtual live courses to be considered in-person and had allowed all CE hours to be obtained online through the end of the biennium which ends March 31, 2022. The Board voted today to move forward with an approved Final Rule draft from August 2020 that adopts the wording of the emergency rule. Without this Final Rule only 10 hours of online CE would be allowed for this license renewal biennium, leaving many DCs with a problem of counting any CE hours more than 10 that they may have taken online or virtually. The Board assured all meeting attendees that, while the Rule is not yet final, licensees may proceed forward as if it were, utilizing approved live, virtual and online learning options for all 40 hours in the current biennium.  The FCA thanks the Board of Chiropractic Medicine members and Assistant Attorney General Larry Harris for their thoughtful consideration and solution to this unique situation.
