Alabama virus cases top 2,000, more than 50 deaths



Alabama is reported a significant jump in the number of COVID-19 patients as more testing sites report results. 

The Alabama Department of Public Health Department said Monday that the state has recorded more than 2,000 positive tests for the virus and 53 reported deaths of COVID-19 patients. The state doubled its number of reported cases in less than a week.

Gov. Kay Ivey announced a “stay-at-home” order by the state health officer that took effect Saturday. The emergency order allows people to leave home for medicine, health care, food, work and to obtain other essentials.
