COVID-19: City of Gadsden Response

Gadsden, AL - The City of Gadsden is carefully monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In response to both the President’s guidance to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people and the Governor’s declaration of a State of Emergency, the City of Gadsden is closing buildings to the public, except for the first floor of Gadsden City Hall.  

We recognize that this situation is currently evolving and we will carefully monitor and modify our plans to address this changing situation to keep the public and our staff safe. Specific closures and plans for specialized public services will be updated:

"The health and safety of our citizens and staff are our first priority. We currently have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 here, but we expect that will change. Limiting and slowing the spread of this virus, through social distancing, good hygiene practices like handwashing, avoiding public gathering is important.  We want to minimize the impact on our citizens, when possible. The city government and essential services, like public safety, garbage collection, and infrastructure maintenance will not stop" said Mayor Sherman Guyton. "We are taking every appropriate action, and planning for all contingencies but we need citizens to remain calm and use good judgment so that we can work through this situation as a community.” 

The City of Gadsden is maintaining operations of important government services but taking deliberate and decisive action to slow and prevent the transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus.  Local emergency managers and government leaders are using science-based, fact-based recommendations in close coordination with Federal, State, and Local Public Health subject matter experts. 

This is a rapidly changing situation, and our response will adapt to changing conditions. As a City and County, we will work in unity with a spirit of teamwork. By working together and following guidelines from public health experts, we will win this battle.
