East Alabama Medical Center has asked the Auburn Chamber to share the following message with our members.

EAMC officials will hold a press conference today at 4 p.m. at the EAMC Education Center to discuss our current situation after sharing this morning that the first COVID-19 case in Lee County is an EAMC employee. In addition, we will discuss screening vs. testing, the needs to seriously practice social distancing and what businesses can do to help stop the spread of COVID-10 in Lee County.

To practice social distancing, EAMC will have media members spread out in the room and are limiting attendance to one media per media outlet.
