WEAT and WEAT CTS CMOM Networking Reception - POSTPONED

Website Events 31


As some of you may know, Austin is now in Stage 5 Covid-19 Risk Level. This means that hospitalization rates due to the delta variant of Covid-19 are very high in the area and ICU capacity is very low.

WEAT has always advocated for good water policy rooted in sound science. And the best policy during the Delta variant surge that is filling Texas hospitals and local ICU beds is to limit the spread of the Delta variant and wait until our members and communities' health is not risked by a WEAT event. We are therefore cancelling the in-person CMOM Networking Event.

We know our members and all water professionals provide an essential service everyday and are absolutely vital in the fight against the spread of Covid-19. And if the past 18 months has taught us anything, it's to be resilient and make the best decision for today and tomorrow using the current information from our public officials based in sound science.

And to that end, we're reposting the following guidance and hope the Delta variant surge recedes and we can soon meet again as a group, safely, and in person:

In light of Stage 5, APH has issued the following guidance:

Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated people should:

  • Get vaccinated.
  • Stay home as much as possible and avoid gatherings and traveling.
  • Choose curbside pickup and delivery options.
  • Wear a mask if they leave home.

Fully vaccinated people should:

  • Wear a mask, wash hands and continue to social distance during private gatherings.
  • Avoid gatherings and travel only when it's essential if they have underlying conditions and are at high-risk of severe illness.
  • Encourage others to get vaccinated.

Take care, stay safe and CMOM on!
