MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says people to not let their guard down on anti-coronavirus measures and was noncommittal on whether closures would have to extend through May.
Ivey spoke at a news conference, saying Tuesday that she wants to reopen the state economy as soon as possible. But she suggested that may take a piecemeal approach when it does.
The governor said she was grateful so many people seem to be complying with a state stay-home order.
The Republican governor also stressed economic concerns, noting that more than a quarter million people filed for unemployment in Alabama over the past four weeks.
