At 10 p.m. on Monday, the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and Governor Brian Kemp announced five additional presumptive positive Coronavirus  (COVID-19) cases in Georgia with other cases being reported throughout today. DPH is currently awaiting confirmatory testing from the CDC on these cases.

“We are fortunate not to have any confirmed or presumptive cases here in Douglasville/Douglas County,” Mayor Rochelle Robinson said. “We ask everyone to stay diligent  with prevention measures taken against this and other viruses.”
The Georgia Department of Public Health has released the best measures everyone can take to avoid respiratory viruses, including COVID-19:

  • Clean your hands often
  • Wash your hands
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and/or mouth with unclean hands
  • Avoid close contact with people, especially those who are sick
  • Avoid handshakes
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Wear a face mask if you are sick
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  •  

    “City staff is monitoring the situation closely,” Mayor Robinson added. “While the risk of COVID-19 remains quite low, it is important to remain cautious. City leadership is working closely with our partners at all levels of government to ensure we have the latest information. We have a policy in place to ensure our facilities are extremely clean and our employees are safe and healthy. My main concern is the safety and health of our residents, visitors, and employees.”
