Message from Macon Public Health

Older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19; however, anyone of any age can become infected with this illness. Therefore, we ask that community members strictly follow the governor’s recommendations and continue to practice social distancing, as well as safe hygiene measures such as hand washing and frequently cleaning touched objects and surfaces. Everyone who is eligible is encouraged to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, a safe and effective prevention tool.

If you believe that you may have COVID-19, please call the Health Department at 828-349-2081 to schedule an appointment for a test. To register and schedule an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, please call 828-349-2081.


Here is a new chart that may be of some use to the public. It measures the change in the numbers of detected COVID-19 cases from Friday to Friday as a percentage change from the previous Friday. It starts on Friday, May 20th, which saw a 0.57% increase in detected cases over the previous week.
