Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) on Thursday issued a statewide health order to aid in Alabama’s efforts to contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
“Despite our best efforts, the threat of the COVID-19 virus continues to spread and, unfortunately, we have not yet reached peak impact. The decision to place regulations upon Alabamians living in Jefferson County and its surrounding counties was an effort to contain the area in which the virus has been prevalent in our state.”
This means for the State of Alabama, effective immediately until April 5:
Social distancing and working from home (where possible) is recommended. We continue to encourage the support of our local businesses and Chamber Members during this ongoing situation. The health and safety of all the citizens is of utmost importance and we will continue to relay reliable information and statements as soon as they become available.
