COVID-19

Message from the Mayor Gary W. Waters

I would like to thank all of our businesses and residents for navigating the COVID-19 pandemic with resilience. With the vaccine rollout underway, we will do everything we can to keep the process moving forward, whether it's providing logistical support to the ADPH, hosting a clinic, or deploying personnel to help with the distribution of vaccines. Keep up to date with our website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. We will continue to push information out as it becomes available.

Shelby County is not under any additional requirements than the restrictions implemented at the state level. For guidance:

GENERAL HEALTH GUIDELINES

  • Avoid gatherings of people
  • Use "physical distancing" of at least six feet apart
  • Use knuckles or elbows to turn on light switches
  • Use paper towels/gloves to lift gas pump handles
  • Wash hands thoroughly, at least 20 seconds
  • Use hand sanitizer with a .60% alcohol when soap and water are not readily available
  • No handshaking
  • No "social kissing" or hugging when greeting friends and relatives
  • Use sanitizing wipes on surfaces prior to use
  • If you don’t feel well: STAY AT HOME 

Should you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms of a contagious respiratory illness and you must call 911 for a medical emergency, please inform the 911 dispatcher of your symptoms. This will allow first responders to take extra measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

SHOP LOCAL DURING COVID-19

We encourage citizens to continue to support Pelham’s businesses and restaurants.  Below are a few constructive ways to support our local and small businesses at this time.

  • Buy gift cards or certificates: A little here and there can hold small businesses over
  • Shop online: Check Facebook, Instagram, and other social media outlets for business websites or stores
  • Order takeout and/or use drive-through and curbside pick-up options
  • Tip generously
  • If you are a business with employees working extended hours, consider bringing in meals from a Pelham restaurant.
