We have entered a crucial time where immediate action is needed in order to halt the worst potential scenarios from COVID-19 crisis, top public health researchers say.

The Center for Disease Control will send more officals to southwest Georgia to investigate a cluster of coronavirus cases in Albany, in Dougherty County, after sending a medical officer to check-in with staff over the weekend. Yesterday, county officials issued public orders directing residents to avoid contact with each other in order to slow the spread of the virus.
