Geneva County remains with one of the lowest COVID-19 counts in Alabama

Coronavirus

GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — There’s currently more than 10,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Alabama, but Geneva County is tied with Lamar for having the second-lowest amount with only 13 cases each.

Rural Fayette County in northwest Alabama has the least amount with only seven. Geneva County EMA Director Eric Johnson said citizens in the Wiregrass have followed distancing guidelines.

He said that’s a big reason why Geneva County has some of the fewest confirmed cases.

“We’ve done really well,” he said. “I think our citizens have really adhered to what we need to do as far as six-foot distancing, and they’ve done a good job as far as doing what they’re supposed to do so we’re proud of our citizens.”

Johnson said he’s working with the Alabama Department of Public Health in bringing a COVID-19 testing site in Geneva County for next week.
