From Niskanen Center :
Meanwhile, responding to the crisis has necessitated a string of regulatory waivers  at the federal and state levels – to allow doctors and nurses to work out of state, to facilitate telemedicine, to expand the scope of work that non-M.D. health professionals can do, to allow restaurants and bars to sell alcohol to takeout customers, and more. The relevant rules have been put aside temporarily as obviously dysfunctional  now – but perhaps that means at least some of them are dysfunctional, if less obviously, all the time ?
