COVID-19 Cases in Montgomery

As COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe and across our state, Montgomery city leaders have taken proactive steps, but we need the public to do their part by washing their hands, practicing social distancing, cancelling events where large crowds are expected, and listening to the recommendations of the ADPH and CDC professionals.

Our goal is to slow the spread of this virus so that our healthcare system in Montgomery and surrounding cities is not overburden. We are asking that residents remain vigilant and make smart decisions as we tackle this together.

MONTGOMERY – In response to the latest federal and state guidelines on slowing the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the City of Montgomery will close access for the public to municipal facilities, effective immediately. All City employees will report to work as usual.

“Our first priority is ensuring the health and safety of the public, and this is another step towards stopping the spread of Coronavirus,” Montgomery Mayor Steven L. Reed said. “I want to reiterate this is a very serious situation that will get worse before it gets better. But let me say once again that Montgomery is Ready.”

Mayor Steven L. Reed joined public safety officials and River Region partners to active the Montgomery Emergency Operations Center. Today, Mayor Reed joined Baptist Health CEO Russ Tyner for the launch of Central Alabama’s first drive-thru Coronavirus testing facility.

In the past week, the City established a comprehensive, ongoing communications strategy to keep residents informed through social media and web properties, as well as Capital City Connection, the City’s government-educational TV programming found on Charter Cable channel 181 and WOW! channel 96. This includes a special website,, created to provide a continuous stream of information to the public.

Officials have been preparing and intensively planning for weeks and months. City departments have detailed contingency plans in place to ensure continuity of operations in any scenario possible.

Montgomery residents are reminded to continue adhering to best practices, especially those provided by ADPH:

Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then dispose of it in the trash;
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth;
Clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces regularly;
Wash hands often with soap and for at least 20 seconds;
Limit social contact;
Avoid crowds of people.
