A Message from Mayor Ollie Clemons:
Our Country has encountered a troubling situation which is
fluid, dangerous, and critical. Coronavirus (COVID -19) is a novel pandemic
which has created a dramatic shift in how we live and interact . Our goal is to
continuously monitor developments by engaging in information sharing between
all levels of government, the Georgia Department of Public Health, and the CDC.
The welfare and safety of our residents, those we do business
with, and employees are of utmost importance. For this reason, I am in constant
contact with federal, state, county, and local partners to remain current on
information as it becomes available.
I believe that to remain safe, we must continue to employ
best practices in our daily activities; keeping social distancing, avoiding
crowds, handwashing with soap and water, coughing and sneezing into a tissue and
disposing of it, and seeking medical attention by first calling
your medical facility- if displaying symptoms similar to the flu; such as
cough, fever, or shortness of breath.
Rest assured that your safety is our top priority, which includes making all matters of business accessible without risking transmission of this disease, and that utilities are continuously provided. City Leadership is committed to aggressively monitoring the development of the Coronavirus and adjusting as necessary to be certain that all requisite policies are in place for your protection.
Austell Cares for and supports our businesses.
We will continue to post information and links as available.
