CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman Regional Medical Center announced Friday that a local healthcare provider in Cullman is the first in the community to test positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

“The provider is currently not exhibiting any symptoms and has self-quarantined for 14 days. All provider, staff and patient interaction has been analyzed and is considered low-risk per CDC guidelines. All of those who came in contact with the provider are being appropriately monitored per CDC guidelines. This provider has recently traveled out-of-state domestically; therefore, it is strongly believed that the provider did not contract COVID-19 locally.

“If you are concerned and have questions about COVID-19 and what you should do, you can call Cullman Regional’s COVID-19 information Line at (256) 735-5530 or visit”
