With direct supervision of a PTA, if the supervising PT (the PT and PTA are in teams) goes on vacation or is sick, can another in-house PT fulfill that requirement?

I have added an additional question to the article with the answer to your question.
Due to the public health emergency, are PTAs in the private practice setting still able to treat patient in-home with the PT supervising by audio/visual availability?
