“The best way to combat rumors is to provide facts,” said Henry County Administrator Tim Hall. “Information surrounding this pandemic is changing almost minute-by-minute, and we need to do our best to provide the most accurate and timely information we can.”

“Our local governments are working hard to provide consistent and current information for our community,” said City Manager Leon Towarnicki. “Having one location for access to the latest updates hopefully makes it easier for citizens to stay informed.”

The page will be updated as needed but at least once a day. The updates will be provided from all federal, state and local agencies and will be posted by the county’s Public Safety staff in conjunction with city personnel
