COVID-19 Cases in Montgomery

As of April 5, 2020, there are sixty-three (63) confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus in Montgomery County. VIEW Alabama's COVID-19 Data and Surveillance Dashboard

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 Ready: City Implements Remote Work Policy

In keeping with ADPH and CDC guidelines, many City staff members will work remotely to ‘flatten the curve’

Post Date:03/17/2020
MONTGOMERY – Mayor Steven L. Reed today instituted a remote work policy for City employees. Staff in congested work areas in most City departments will work remotely at home to mitigate the further spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Smaller City departments that can operate safely in the office will continue to do so. All essential services, including Public Safety and Sanitation, will be maintained and on regular schedule.

“The top priority of any government is protecting the health and safety of its residents,” Mayor Reed said.  “Restricting access to our buildings and asking staff to work from home are extensions of the proactive steps we’re taking to combat Coronavirus and minimize COVID-19 health risks in Montgomery. Our cabinet heads are working diligently to ensure City services are disrupted as little as possible; however, the global pandemic mandates we take unprecedented preventive steps. We stress our gratitude and appreciation for Montgomery’s team on the frontlines – those working in our Public Safety, EMA and Sanitation divisions who are essential to maintain continuity of operations. They will not be affected by this policy and will continue working to keep our neighborhoods clean, safe and healthy.”

The remote work policy begins Wednesday and will be effective through at least March 31, during which time Mayor Reed and his administration will review the ongoing circumstances. Employees will not see a disruption in their pay. Following this initial evaluation period, the policy may be amended depending on federal and state health guidelines. Mayor Reed states, “Some staff members may be re-assigned to different areas to ensure our city continues to operate productively and efficiently.”
Mayor Reed directed City cabinet heads to devise their COVID-19 response and continuity of operation plans weeks in advance of Alabama’s first confirmed Coronavirus cases. Today’s announcement follows news yesterday that the City has closed public access to municipal facilities – with the exception of Municipal Court – indefinitely. The Municipal Court remains open and will allow six people in the building at a time, sending them to non-adjacent service windows. Court administrators ask the public to call (334) 625-2776 for further guidance. 

The City has maintained a comprehensive, ongoing communications strategy to keep residents informed. This includes its social media properties, website found at and Capital City Connection, the City’s government-educational TV programming found on Charter Spectrum channel 181 and WOW! channel 96. CCC can also be viewed live online on the City’s website,

Mayor Reed signed a local state of emergency declaration Saturday (a procedural step to be eligible for possible reimbursement of COVID-19 expenses) and activated the Emergency Operations Center Sunday.  Updates and new information on the City of Montgomery’s response will be provided as they occur.
