Friday March 27 COVID-19 Response & Update

As the wave of confirmed COVID-19 cases hits our State and County the City of Gadsden continues to work with local, state, and national partners to take decisive action to save lives. We are facing unprecedented circumstances, and we are taking unprecedented measures to protect our community.

Today, Governor Kay Ivey issued yet another Public Health Order with strong language urging all Alabamians to stay vigilant and to take precautions to avoid exposure and spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The current public health order now closes entertainment venues, athletic facilities, close-contact services, and retail stores. Local law enforcement will continue to enforce the current public health order from the State. Essential businesses are still permitted to remain open in compliance with all public health orders and guidelines. 

"While I know that strictly following these orders from state and local public health officials will be difficult, together we will get through this crisis. I strongly urge all citizens of Gadsden to take the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and to stay home. Essential business will still go on, but we need the public to follow these orders because this is a matter of life and death. Only by staying home can we prevent the spread of this virus, and keep everyone safe," said Gadsden Mayor Sherman Guyton. 

All of our local officials and leaders are thankful to those on the front lines of keeping us safe from this and other threats. We thank those in the community sacrificing to protect those most at risk to the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. As we’ve noted before, 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 compassion and teamwork; we will win this battle and emerge better and stronger together.
