COVID-19 Update

On March 19, 2020 The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) declared a public health disaster in Texas because of the new coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Members of the Austin Black Physicians Association (ABPA) are on the front lines caring for patients, and we are grateful for their commitment and service during this historical crisis.

The Texas DSHS is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in responding to COVID-19. ABPA supports the guidelines outlined by recent Texas Executive Orders to protect our communities. For more information, please click the links below:
