The Governor's Report to Open Texas

Governor Abbott released The Governor's Report to Open Texas, based on the recommendations of the Strike Force to Open Texas, that brought together nationally recognized medical experts with public- and private-sector business leaders to determine the best way to contain COVID-19 while also adhering to safe standards that will allow the process of opening Texas.

The Governor urges all Texans to act responsibly as we re-engage in the economy, to continue following all health precautions and sanitizing guidelines, and to care for our vulnerable neighbors.

The process focuses on protecting the most vulnerable populations among us, on nursing home mitigation measures, on ramping up testing, and on scaling up contact tracing of COVID-19.

14TH ANNUAL EMAT SYMPOSIUM - FEBruary, 2022

Due to the current COVID-19 situation and jurisdictional and state agency budget restrictions, a decision has been made to cancel next year's Symposium scheduled for February 28-March 3, 2021.  This decision was supported by a Board of Director's vote. Please know this was a difficult decision to make, however, the Symposium Committee will discuss other possible options to serve the membership, such as a virtual event.  It is the committee's goal to continue to provide timely and educational information to EMAT's membership of the highest quality possible.
