The order will be effective beginning Saturday, April 4, at 5:00 p.m. and will expire Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 5:00 p.m

“We are done urging people to stay at home,” said Ivey. “It is now the law. I urge you in the strongest way possible. We have to take this order deadly serious. Otherwise people will die.”

People can now only leave their homes for essential goods and essential services, such as groceries and medicines.

  •  Supplies needed to work from home;
  •  Pharmaceutical prescriptions or other medical supplies
  • Fuel for automobiles or other vehicles or other vehicle supplies;
  • Materials for distance learning or other education-related purposes; and
