∙ More positive tests coming from a younger age group (20-40 years of age)

∙ Last week recorded the highest number of reported cases in Cobb/Douglas since the pandemic started

∙ The positivity rate has risen from around 4% to more than 10%. Combined with more testing this is evidence of increased spread in our community.

Sheriff's Office

Cobb Sheriff’s Office prepares for Covid-19

The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office continues to monitor the Covid-19 situation and has developed plans to allow us to react quickly in this ever-changing atmosphere. We are committed to doing our part by working with the Cobb/Douglas Public Health Department and Wellstar Health Systems while closely following their recommendations to ensure the health and well-being of our staff and inmates. We have no reported cases of Covid-19 in our facilities at this time.

Increased attention has been placed on the screening process of those individuals brought to our facility with a more in-depth questioning of past travels and health concerns prior to their incarceration. This too is a fluid process that will change as we receive updates about the virus. We have extended our transition time between intake and cell assignments to fourteen days to allow for enhanced observation for symptoms of Covid-19. We are looking closely at our visitation process and how it can be modified during this time so as to minimize the possibility of passing the virus. We are also assessing access to public lobbies and face to face transactions. Plans are in place that, if needed, we can open a temporary housing unit for the Sheriff’s Office staff to reduce the possibility of transmitting the virus between work and home.

Our Sheriff’s Office is working closely with the judicial staff and partner law enforcement agencies regarding the processing of warrants and orders from the court, to include evictions, restraining orders and other orders in areas that might increase person-to-person contact. The Sheriff’s Office is also actively working with Cobb Information Services in exploring options available to facilitate remote work duties, when appropriate, from home.

Earlier today Sheriff Warren sent out an email to all staff supporting and praising them for the job they are doing and to let them know that they are making a positive difference during this trying time in our community. Sheriff Warren and his command staff are having regular daily discussions and continue to make the necessary adjustments when needed to ensure the overall best health and safety of our staff and those in their care. He closed his email with "We are committed with everyone to fight the spread of Covid-19 in our community. God bless you all and God bless America!"

We ask that you keep check on our website cobbsheriff.org and social media along the county government websites and social media for any changes that may affect you during this time.

Disaster-relief loans for small business / SBA Loan Application

The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to Georgia small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As provided by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act that was recently signed by President Trump and following a request for Georgia from Governor Brian Kemp, SBA disaster assistance is now available to the entire state of Georgia. These loans can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing. Loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. Here are a few helpful application notes:

  • Applicants may apply online at disasterloan.sba.gov.
  • Please note that applicants are applying for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Program, so they MUST select the Economic Injury (EIDL) Loan Option. 
  • If they select the wrong option, they do not have to re-register but they will need to start the application again.
  • The following PDF explains the Three Step Loan Process.
  • Applicants may also call SBA’s Customer Service Center at (800) 659-2955 or email [email protected] for more information on SBA disaster assistance.

UPDATE - Cobb County Government entered day 1 of the “Limited Operational Services” status Wednesday. County operations will continue, but on a more limited and restricted basis. Some details from this video:

  • The Chairman says the county can avoid a “State of Emergency” if we continue to follow public health guidelines and keep our medical services operating on a sustainable level.
  • The Cobb & Douglas Public Health Department started drive-through testing at Jim R. Miller Park.

VIDEO UPDATE - Cobb County Government moves into “Limited Operational Services” status.

  • Many workers will work from home
  • County services to continue, but some delays possible
  • Courthouses, Sheriff’s Office, Police and Fire all operating
  • A drive-through testing facility in Cobb

CLICK HERE to watch the video update to see how county leaders are preparing, and how others are working to keep you safe during this uncertain time.

Cobb County will transition to a “limited operational” status Wednesday that will mean many publicly-accessible buildings will be closed, except for essential employees.  County services will continue and public safety will remain fully staffed.

“We need to follow the latest public health guidelines and advice on how to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus,” Deputy County Manager Dr. Jackie McMorris said.  “This action will help protect both the public and our employees by limiting the number of people in buildings and public spaces.”

The change in operational status will begin at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, March 18 and will remain in effect until the county manager deems it safe to end. Department managers will determine which employees are essential and which employees can work remotely. The Cobb County Board of Commissioners approved policy revisions today that will ensure payment to those employees during this time, including those sent home to telework.

During a special-called Board of Commissioners meeting Monday, Cobb County Commission Chairman Mike Boyce canceled Tuesday’s Zoning Hearing saying holding a meeting with a large group of people would send the wrong message.

Some highlights of the status change include:

  • Most public lobbies will close, and departments that take payments from the public will make arrangements to accept those payments by other methods.
  • Lobbies that must stay open will limit access to indoor spaces and require a six-foot buffer between employees and other patrons.
  • Libraries, senior centers, and recreational facilities will remain closed throughout this period.  Outdoor parks will remain accessible, and any restroom facilities at those parks will undergo cleaning at regular intervals.
  • Cobb County’s administration building at 100 Cherokee St. will be closed to the public with access by essential employees only.
  • Cobb County courthouses will remain open to handle essential matters to ensure due process and to protect our community.

Cobb County Government Transitions Workforce to Combat Spread of COVID-19 Virus

Many publicly accessible buildings and lobbies to close, zoning meeting postponed, Sheriff’s Office response

Cobb County will transition to a “limited operational” status Wednesday that will mean many publicly-accessible buildings will be closed, except for essential employees.  County services will continue and public safety will remain fully staffed.

  • Cobb County courthouses will remain open to handle essential matters to ensure due process and to protect our community.

Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren provided the following about the Sheriff’s Office response to the pandemic:

The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office continues to monitor the COVID19 situation and has developed plans to allow us to react quickly in this ever-changing atmosphere. 

We are working closely with the Judicial Court Complex staff, Cobb-Douglas Public Health board, our medical provider WellStar Health System, surrounding law enforcement agencies, various state agencies including the Dept. of Public Health and others. Our focus continues to be on the health and safety of the citizens of Cobb, our employees, and their families as well as those in our custody.

Attention has been placed on the screening process of those individuals brought to our facility with a more in-depth questioning of past travels and health concerns both now and previous to their incarceration. This too is a fluid process that will change as we receive updates about the virus. We have extended our transition time between Intake and cell placement by fourteen days. We are looking closely at our visitation process and how it can be modified during this time so as to minimize the possibility of passing the virus. We are also assessing access to public lobbies and face to face access.  We have set-up video conferencing for those court hearings taking place at the jail to further reduce contact and create the recommended “social distancing” in all areas whenever possible. When needed a temporary housing unit has been created for Sheriff’s Office staffing to reduce the possible transition of the virus between home and work.

Finally, the Cobb Sheriff’s Office is working closely with Judicial Staffing and other Law Enforcement Agencies regarding the processing of warrants and orders from the court, to include evictions, restraining orders and other orders in areas that might increase person-to-person contact. The Sheriff’s Office is also actively working with IS in exploring the options available to us for those with duties appropriate to work from home.

Kemp: Grand Princess Cruise Ship Passengers Headed to Dobbins Air Reserve Base

Atlanta, GA – Following federal briefings late Saturday evening, Governor Brian P. Kemp issued the following statement:

"I have learned that thirty-four Georgians and additional American citizens from the eastern United States who are currently on the Grand Princess cruise ship off the California coast will be securely transferred to Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Georgia. These passengers will undergo testing and be quarantined for possible exposure to COVID-19. They are expected to arrive at Dobbins late Monday, March 9 or early Tuesday, March 10.

"I am confident that Dobbins is equipped to provide high-quality care for Americans in need while keeping Georgia families safe, and our state stands ready to assist our federal partners if requested. In the days and weeks ahead, I encourage Georgians to pray for the patients affected by COVID-19 and their healthcare providers. We must continue to support one another, trust the advice of the medical community, and remain vigilant.

"My office remains in constant communication with the Trump administration, lawmakers, and state and local officials to ensure the health and safety of families across Georgia and our country. We will continue to provide updates as soon as they become available."

Cobb School District Closes Elementary School for Two Weeks

Dear Cobb Schools Community and Staff, 

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) informed us today of a positive case of Coronavirus at Kincaid Elementary School. At the direction of the DPH, and due to federal privacy laws, we are unable to share specifics about the case.

We have prioritized the health of Kincaid students and staff by deciding to close Kincaid Elementary for the next 14 days beginning on March 12th. Within 48 hours of school closure, and following DPH guidelines, Cobb staff will thoroughly clean and sanitize the entire campus, including buses. No other Cobb schools are closed at this time. 

The District has planned for this scenario, and the students at Kincaid will continue receiving digital classroom content from their teachers using a variety of digital platforms and tools.

Our staff is working to keep our facilities clean, and our schools are reminding students about best practices for staying healthy including practicing good hygiene.  Navigating these next days and weeks will take a team effort, but we believe that our community is well-prepared.

We will continue to follow the guidance of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the DPH on these matters. Moving forward, please know that we will be prioritizing student and staff safety in every decision that we make.
