THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) — Right now, there are 420 coronavirus cases in Georgia.

With the call for social distancing, the City of Thomasville is working to make sure businesses can keep their doors opened.

One way they're doing it is by installing washing stations around the city. The goal is to prevent the spread of germs.

There are six different spots around downtown. These make it easier for shoppers to stay clean.

April Norton, the City of Thomasville Main Street business director, says safety is their priority.

"We are making sure were following CDC protocols, so putting those washing stations downtown encourages clean facilities throughout Thomasville," Norton said.

The hand-washing stations will be there as long as Thomasville needs them. The city wants people to know that these businesses are still open and need your support.
