MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Gov. Kay Ivey and the state are taking more steps to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Alabama.

As the state creeps towards 600 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the state has amended its health order stating certain businesses will be closed until April 17 beginning Saturday at 5 p.m.

The order says entertainment venues, athletic facilities, close contact services and many retail stores are not allowed to open. In a tweet, Ivey said, “Folks, this is incredibly disappointing news to deliver, but this is a matter of life and death. If you can stay home, you are safer at home.”

Also, effective Saturday at 5 p.m., all non-work related gatherings of any size where people  cannot maintain a six-foot distance are prohibited.
