City Officials Working with EAMC to Stay Up to Date on Coronavirus

City officials met with Greg Nichols, EAMC Executive Vice President, and Brooke Bailey, EAMC Infection Prevention Director, earlier this week to discuss how we can work together to educate and keep the public updated on the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Hospital officials have been working over the past two months with multi-disciplinary teams to prepare in the event someone presents at the hospital with COVID-19 coronavirus symptoms. They are in close contact with the CDC, the ADPH and the Alabama Hospital Association.

Please practice good hygiene. Just like with the seasonal flu, very young, the elderly or people with compromised immune systems are the ones at most risk. Washing hands, covering a cough and limiting public exposure are the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In addition, avoid touching your face, routinely clean and disinfect touched surfaces like door handles and phones, and stay home when sick.

People with a history of travel in the past 14 days to affected areas AND ARE NOT experiencing symptoms should call the Alabama Department of Health Infectious Diseases & Outbreaks Division at 1-800-338-8374.

People who have a history of travel in the past 14 days to affected areas AND are experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever, cough or difficulty breathing, should call 334-528-SICK.
