Health officials recommend all Alabama students wear masks


Students and teachers are advised by health officials to continue wearing masks at school.

The Alabama Public Health Department recommends the practice due to the surge of COVID-19 cases in the state as it ranks last in the country for vaccination rates.

The Birmingham, Huntsville, Bessemer and Opelika school systems are already requiring masks to be worn indoors.
