What You Should Know About COVID-19

Post Date:03/04/2020 2:30 PM

Douglasville Mayor Rochelle Robinson and the City Council want to make sure our citizens are informed about the "Corona Virus" (Covid-19).

Cobb & Douglas Public Health in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) already has a detailed pandemic flu plan that was developed in partnership with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency, the Georgia Department of Education and other state agencies, and will be adapted for a COVID-19 outbreak. 

The same measures that are urged to prevent the spread of any respiratory virus are increasingly important for all Georgians:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water
    are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue to cover it, then throw the tissue in the
    trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Here are some resources to help Douglasville Citizens be informed:
