Holistic Texas Biz Offered Bogus COVID-19 Tests, Feds Say

Prosecutors in Texas announced Thursday that a federal judge has temporarily halted allegedly fraudulent coronavirus testing being administered by a masseuse at her holistic health care facility.

U.S. District Judge David A. Ezra granted the government’s motion for a temporary restraining order in the matter July 6, heading off the allegedly improper testing being offered at the New Braunfels, Texas-based Living Health Holistic Healing Center, which does business as Living Health New Braunfels.

In an Aug. 5 complaint naming the facility and its owner and operator, licensed massage therapist Leslie Tatum, the government claimed that since May, Tatum had flouted numerous city, state and federal requirements by misleadingly advertising $85 coronavirus tests she wasn’t qualified to administer and didn’t have the means to properly interpret.
