Alabama virus cases at nearly 200; tax deadline extended

Governor Kay Ivey

 

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The number of coronavirus cases in Alabama jumped to nearly 200 as health officials urged people to maintain social distancing and the governor extended the deadline for filing state income taxes until mid-summer. 

Alabama on Monday had at least 197 confirmed cases of coronavirus, of which 86 were in Jefferson County.

State Health Officer Scott Harris said getting supplies for testing is a continuing concern. 

Gov. Kay Ivey announced that Alabama extended the filing deadline for state income taxes from April 15 to July 15 as the state tries to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
