The chart displays four levels for public awareness of coronavirus in the Amarillo area, including confirmed cases. As of today, there are no confirmed cases in the Amarillo area.

Each level indicates information on preventive measures and recommendations for the public. Amarillo  is currently at Level Yellow, which states no confirmed cases.

The city is also following recent recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC is recommending the temporary suspension of public events with large gatherings of people.

As a result, the city is temporarily suspending the Amarillo Civic Center Complex for all gatherings and events in accordance with CDC guidelines. The city is making contact with each event lessee and prompter impacted under these guidelines.

According to the CDC, these recommendations are made in an attempt to reduce the introduction of COVID-19 into communities and to slow its spread.
