Safety is of utmost importance at Hanger Clinic, and our COVID-19 Task Force continues to closely monitor current COVID-19 statistics and trends to provide informed guidance. Fortunately, the number of positive cases in the U.S. has significantly decreased over the past several weeks, and the number of positive cases continues to trend down. Therefore, the policy for Hanger Clinic-sponsored events, including EmpowerFest 2022, has been updated.
The changes for EmpowerFest include:
- Attendees are no longer required to be vaccinated to attend the event.
- Attendees are highly encouraged to take a COVID test (at-home or professionally administered) within 48 hours of arrival in Texas, but are no longer required to do so.
- Masks will be optional, as we are following the local/facility mask regulations and they are not required at the Hyatt Lost Pines.
- If you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms, regardless of a negative COVID test, do not attend the event.
As always, the safety of all attendees is our top priority, and if you have any questions regarding these changes, please email [email protected].
