Governor Ivey Amends Safer-At-Home Order, Barbershops & Salons Can Reopen Monday
Governor Kay Ivey has amended the Safer-At-Home Order.
The new order removes the 10 person limit on non-work gatherings. Close contact services (barbershops, salons, etc.), restaurants (with limited table seating), & gyms will all be reopened with strict guidelines. And there is no limit on gatherings at beaches but you must maintain social distancing.
Governor Ivey says the threat of COVID-19 still exists in Alabama and Dr. Scott Harris stated that as Alabama moves into next phase of reopening it is more important than ever to maintain social distancing. The biggest COVID-19 outbreak was related to a church event. Dr. Harris encourages churches to look at ADPH guidance.
Governor Ivey hopes to announce the next phase of reopening around the middle of next week.
The amended Safer-At-Home Order goes into effect on May 11.
