To practice social distancing and wear masks may be simple for some states but for Alabamians, it only made things harder. As of June 4th,2020, there are 18,634 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state of Alabama. That’s a tremendous amount of cases. However, the positive side to this there are 9,355 people that have recovered from the virus. That’s over half of the confirmed cases in the state.
On April 4th, Governor Kay Ivey established a Stay-At-Home order and it would be in effect until April 30th. Even though Governor Ivey had set this order in place, Alabamians had still refused to obey it. On May 8th, she decided to lift the Stay-At-Home order and issue the Safer-At-Home order. Alabamians would be open to more outside activities but there are still some limitations that come with it. She had issued a curfew which starts at 10 p.m. and will last until 5 p.m. The following morning.
Yesterday, only 80 cases were confirmed in Alabama. That’s right. 80 cases. The state of Alabama is showing a small amount of improvement. If Alabamians would like for things to go back to normal, they need to start practicing safer precautions.
