“Over the course of the past several weeks, I’ve been troubled by the fact that the number of COVID-19 cases in our community continue to be trending in the wrong direction,” Council President William Parker said. “It is incumbent upon all of us, not just elected officials, to educate as many people as we can about why wearing face coverings and practicing safe social distancing is vital to overcoming this crisis.”
Councilor John Hilliard said he’s been encouraged by the cooperation he’s witnessed throughout Birmingham during the crisis.
“This has been an unprecedented time for all of us,” Hilliard said. “But it has affirmed my belief that in the face of adversity, Birmingham responds in a big way. There are people in ever corner of this city helping one another, providing food, clothing and protective face coverings. It’s imperative that we continue to hold one another up during this difficult time. There are better days ahead.”
