BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — On Monday, Birmingham City Council President William Parker, along with representatives with the Jefferson County Department of Health (JCDH) and local nursing organizations are a press conference outside of City Hall to discuss updates  on COVID-19.

“We’ve seen a very serious rise in cases recently and it can largely be attributed to unacceptably low levels of vaccine participation across the state,” President Parker said. “We want to continue working with our healthcare experts to provide the public with an update on how they can stay safe and help stop the spread of COVID-19.”  

Health experts will also be providing information about the latest efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and discuss best practices for safety during the current uptick in cases. 

The full press conference will be available in the video player above shortly.
