Entities in Appling County have met to develop a plan to be proactive against the spread of the Coronavirus. Appling County Board of Commissioners, the City of Baxley, Appling County Schools, Appling Healthcare, Appling County Health Department, Baxley Police, Appling Co. Sheriff's Dept., Appling Co. Emergency Management Agency and the Baxley-Appling County Chamber of Commerce have agreed on the following course of action.

All social gatherings of 50 or more in the next two weeks (now -  March 27) hosted by the entities above have been cancelled. A decision will be made about rescheduling these activities at a later date. Additional events and activities will be evaluated March 27.

All citizens are encouraged to limit exposure to crowds and nonessential gatherings for a period of approximately two weeks.
