Ivey and State Health Officer direct closure of certain businesses in Alabama until April 17

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.”
