Coronavirus Disease Response and Information
The City of Huntsville is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidance to plan for the local transmission of the virus that causes Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). Preparing for and responding to disease outbreaks is a routine part of municipal emergency management preparations. In close and continuing consultation with the CDC and Alabama Department of Public Health, we are taking an active approach to COVID-19 similar to that used for other potential threats such as the H1N1 flu virus, SARS, Ebola and Zika, as well as the re-emergence of more endemic diseases like hepatitis A and measles. Vigilance and personal protective measures are critical to staying healthy and preventing further spread of the virus.
