Doors may be secured at various hours, but are typically open between the hours of 8am and 8pm. An ALF must screen all individuals who enter the facility prior to entry (except for emergency personnel), including staff at the start of their shift, any visitors, new residents, and residents returning to the facility for: Fever, defined as a temperature of 100.4 Fahrenheit and above.

Post signage at all entrances of the facility reminding individuals not to enter the facility prior to being screened. Do not restrict surveyors. HHSC is constantly evaluating their surveyors to ensure they don’t pose a transmission risk when entering a facility. For example, surveyors might have been in a facility with COVID‐19 cases in the previous 10 days, but because they were wearing PPE effectively per the CDC guidelines, they pose a low risk to transmission in the next facility and must be allowed to enter. However, there are circumstances under which surveyors should not enter, such as if they have a fever or any additional signs or symptoms of illness and must still be screened at the sign in log. Visitors Persons providing critical assistance must be allowed to enter the facility provided they pass required screening. These include: Family members and loved ones of residents at the end‐of‐life; Essential caregivers; Emergency responders (do not screen in an emergency); Persons with legal authority to enter, including: Government personnel performing their official duties, including HHSC surveyors whose presence is necessary to ensure the ALF is protecting the health safety of residents and providing appropriate care; Law enforcement officers (do not screen in an emergency) and Representatives of the Long‐term Care Ombudsman’s Office and representatives of Disability Rights Texas; and Providers of essential services which include contract doctors, contract nurses, home health and hospice workers, health care professionals, contract professionals, clergy members and spiritual counselors, whose services are necessary to ensure resident health and safety.

Personal Visitors ALFs must allow all residents who are COVID‐19 negative or positive to have personal visitors. COVID-19 positive residents may still have visitors, but their visitors may have to wear PPE. Visits can occur where adequate space is available as necessary to ensure physical distancing between other residents and visitors, including the resident’s room.
