A Texas appeals court ruled last week that doctors at Fort Worth-area hospital can’t be forced to administer Ivermectin to treat a law enforcement officer suffering from coronavirus aftereffects.

Jason Jones, 48, a Tarrant County officer and father of six children, tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 23. Less than a week later, he was admitted to Texas Health Huguley Hospital Fort Worth South, where he was treated with steroids and antibiotics, according to the appellate court’s opinion.
