FCC published its 2019 nationwide EAS test report. The issues haven't 
changed, and some improved.

"With respect to the single largest complication reported from the 2019 
nationwide EAS test results – namely, issues with monitoring source 
failures – FEMA notes that it is actively taking measures to
improve PEP performance going forward. In particular, FEMA has begun 
working with SECCs in several states to conduct state-level tests on a 
monthly basis and station-level tests on a weekly basis
through the PEP stations. FEMA emphasizes that continued testing of the 
PEP stations will improve EAS performance over time, as this testing will 
help ensure the PEP stations are relaying messages properly through the 
EAS and allow stakeholders to make ongoing improvements and adjustments 
as needed."
