    Coronavirus (COVID-19) News & Information

    On March 15th, Mayor Steven L. Reed launched MGM Ready to coordinate efforts and provide up-to-date information to the public on COVID-19.

COVID-19 Cases in Montgomery County

As of May 29, 2020, there are 1,541 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, 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 is not overburdened. Please remain vigilant and make smart decisions as we tackle this together.

City partners with Hands-On River Region to offer free masks on Friday at three Montgomery locations

Post Date:04/29/2020 1:27 PM

The City of Montgomery, thanks to an initiative spurred by Mayor Steven L. Reed’s Community Impact Task Force, will partner with Hands-On River Region to offer free masks to residents Friday at a few convenient locations across town.

“As our city and our state begin the process of reopening, we urge everyone to take appropriate precautions by continuing to practice healthy hygiene routines,” Mayor Reed said. “Wearing masks or face coverings in public places is one way we can all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. We understand that some members of our community have limited access to masks as well as the required household supplies to make homemade face coverings, which is why we are partnering with the Community Impact Task Force and Hands-On River Region to bridge this gap.”

Masks will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the locations listed below. Each location will have about 1,250 masks, but organizers will limit distributions to two masks per vehicle. They will offer drive-thru-like system to ensure proper social-distancing takes place.

Friday’s event coincides with the first full day of Alabama’s new Safer at Home order. The order recommends people wear masks inside of public places and when social distancing might be a challenge. Organizers hope this event not only promotes the use of face coverings in public, but that it will improve access for Montgomery’s most vulnerable residents.
