MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Area mayors released the following statement in support of the county's Unified Command and its efforts to help contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
"June 29, 2020
We, the Mayors of Mobile County, offer our full support to the Unified Command and its efforts to help contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Unified Command – consisting of the Mobile County Health Department, Mobile County Commission and City of Mobile – has led the endeavor in helping to protect the public’s health during this outbreak. We agree the best ways are to follow these everyday preventative actions:
• Wash your hands frequently.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
• Wear a cloth face cover when you go out in public.
Until a vaccine or treatment for COVID-19 are approved, these simple measures can help keep Mobile County as safe as possible during these times. When you can, “Be A Hero: Stay Home, Save Lives!”
