In a brief meeting Monday morning, Cullman County Chairman Kenneth Walker declares a State of Emergency for Cullman County.

“I, Kenneth Walker, Chairman of Cullman County Commission want to say that this is becoming the worst thing I have ever heard. President Donald Trump has declared a National Emergency, governor Kay Ivey has declared a state of emergency, and The Commission is declaring a State of emergency for Cullman County. The commission has closed all senior centers due to the elderly people being most likely to get this virus before anyone else. We are going to take this one day at a time but know there may be daily unexpected changes. So please bear with the Commission, every elected official we have in our county – the state of Alabama – and the United States of America. We need to come together during this time and work as a team. I’m proud to be from Cullman because I know how we unite and come together for each other during times of emergencies.”

Dusty Baker with Commission on Aging reassured the Seniors of Cullman County will be taken care of and they are putting plans in place to make sure Seniors have what they need.

Phyllis Little said at this time in Cullman County, there is no confirmed CoronaVirus cases in Cullman County.

All Cullman County events planned for the next 30 days have been postponed. Including all Park and Rec events.

Anyone with questions regarding the elderly, please contact the Cullman County Commission on Aging.
