Ivey Issues Stay-At-Home Order for Alabama

Gov. Kay Ivey Friday issued a stay-at-home order for the entire state. It takes effect Saturday at 5 p.m. The governor says previous efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus have not been enough. The order makes exceptions for essential items, including groceries, takeout food, medicine, and gas. The state health department said more than 1,450 people have been diagnosed with the virus across Alabama, causing at least 21 deaths. State Attorney General Steve Marshall says the order, which runs through the end of the month, will be enforced.
