What’s new in Gov. Ivey’s mask order extension?


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WDHN) — Gov. Kay Ivey announced Thursday morning that she will be extending the mask order one final time to April 9.

However, with this extension, comes some changes on how businesses can operate.

Hospitals and nursing homes will be allowed visits from two caregivers or visitors at a time.

Senior centers will be allowed to resume programs in outdoor settings subject to social distancing guidelines. Meals will still be done on a pickup or delivery basis.

Restaurants, bar, and breweries can allow guests inside with no limit on party sizes. Partitions or six feet between tables are still required.

Summer camps can still open with social distancing and sanitation rules in place, but the social distancing requirement now matches that of schools.

You can watch her announcement above.
