As El Paso City leaders announce the lifting of the Stay Home, Work Safe order effective Friday, May 1, efforts to practice social distancing to slow the spread of the Coronavirus and protect the city’s vulnerable population remains a top priority.
“As Texas and those of us here in El Paso transition to re-open our city, Emergence Health Network (EHN) wants to remind our residents that social distancing is important now more than ever,” said Kristi Daugherty, Emergence Health Network Chief Executive Officer.
“As the Local Mental Health and IDD Authority EHN is the lead agency when assisting our residents with their mental health needs, but when dealing with the threat of COVID-19 we also want to do our part and encourage safe practices to protect one and other.”
Together with family and friends of our EHN employees, Emergence Health Network created a video targeting young adults, with a message from young adults.
“We wanted to reach out to this generation because millennials are at the age when they are social by nature. It’s a friendly reminder that together we can do this,” add Daugherty.
