COVID-19 Cases in Montgomery

As of April 7, 2020, there are seventy-two (72) 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.
