Today, Gov. Ivey extended the current “Safer at Home” order, which includes the mask mandate, through Friday, December 11 (when new guidelines will be announced).

The state has also lifted occupancy limitations for retailers, gyms and fitness centers as well as entertainment venues, restaurants and close-contact businesses like hair and nail salons. However, for restaurants, gyms/fitness centers, and close-contact businesses, in order to allow for normal capacity, customers must wear masks and be separated by impermeable partitions or barriers like plexiglass.

The statewide order can be viewed in its entirety here.
