Foley following precautionary measures against Coronavirus

The City of Foley continues to monitor the COVID-19 virus, and follow guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and the Alabama Department of Public Health. Our goal is to help slow the spread of the virus during the outbreak.

Because the disease spreads through social contact, as of Monday, March 16, the Graham Creek Nature Preserve Interpretive Center will be closed until further notice, and recreational youth sports leagues and boards created by the city council will not meet until further notice. The Foley Kids Park will be closed. Other city parks will remain open. Please practice social distancing when visiting the parks.

Also closed for now are Foley’s Public Library, Senior Center, Welcome Center, Railroad Museum, Model Train Exhibit and Holmes Medical Museum.

Many widely-held events scheduled between now and April 15 have been canceled or postponed, following guidelines that gatherings of over 50 people are prohibited. This includes the Census 2020 event, Forward City Con and the early April Historic Foley Walking Tours. Events planned after April 15 will be reviewed at a later date. Anyone with a scheduled event at a city facility is asked to please contact the city meeting facility directly.

Other city departments remain open for business. Additional cleaning and disinfecting protocols are in place in city buildings. Hand sanitizer and wipes are available at all public buildings. Social distancing, including no handshakes and keeping a distance of six feet apart, is observed in all city facilities.

The city will continue to push out information over the coming days on the city website, and the city municipal Facebook page.
