HAMILTON - Rumors and hear-say are just more issues to handle for officials in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Marion County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director Eric Terrell urged numerous county and industry officials on Wednesday, March 25, to stomp out misinformation the best they can.
Terrell said his office’s main goal at this stage of Marion County’s COVID-19 response is to support the Alabama Department of Public Health. He said he is getting updates twice a day from state health officials and relaying information to different offices throughout the county.
“I don’t send it out unless it comes straight from ADPH,” Terrell said. “We need to encourage the public to get their information from official sources.”
