Dear Friends and Colleagues,

In this update, I want to make you aware of expanded information resources available form Austin Public Health. The COVID-19 Information page on the APH website displays a useful dashboard tracking important statistics. The Health Providers section has information on the Austin Travis County Emergency Operations Center (EOC). This includes descriptions of the Incident Command System, COVID-19 Task Forces, and Surge Plans. In addition, there are sections with relevant and useful COVID-19 clinical information.

The Austin-Travis County EMS System Office of the Medical Director website has podcasts including COVID-19 related topics that many physicians will find informative including the following episodes:


I hope you find this information informative and useful.

Stay safe and healthy!

John Abikhaled, MD
