Governor’s Executive Order 20-91 – Supports Chiropractic Physicians As Essential Services
Wednesday, 01 April 2020
Just this afternoon, Governor DeSantis issued a 34-page Executive Order 20-91, in furtherance of reducing the spread of COVID-19.  In that Order, the Governor limits conduct and services to “Essential services” as delineated in the March 28, 2020, list detailed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in its Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce (see page 5).  The FCA reported on this CISA Order on March 31, 2020.  Because CISA was specific in including Chiropractic Physicians as “essential healthcare workers,” chiropractors in Florida can continue to conduct business as it has been, following necessary safety protocols.  As we continue to state, this is a personal choice, yet one that supports the profession along with other physician groups as essential healthcare workers.
April 1 Effective Date of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act & What It Means to Your Office
Wednesday, 01 April 2020
On March 18, 2020, President Trump signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) to respond to the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Among other things, FFCRA establishes and requires Emergency Paid Sick Leave and expands the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) for certain employees. Covered employers with less than 500 employees are required to provide employees with paid sick leave or paid family and medical leave for qualifying reasons related to the coronavirus (COVID-19).  FFCRA also provides a tax credit to employers to mitigate the costs of providing the required leave. The Act becomes effective today, April 1, 2020 and remains in effect through December 31, 2020.
