Alabama’s death toll from the coronavirus passed 550 on Sunday, according to data from the state Department of Public Health. 

There have been over 14,200 confirmed cases of the virus statewide. Close to 4,400 cases have been reported within the last 14 days.

New rules from Gov. Kay Ivey went into effect Friday at 5 p.m. allowing entertainment venues like bowling alleys, arcades and theaters as well as child care facilities to reopen subject to social-distancing and sanitation rules. Youth sports practices have also been allowed to resume, though competition won’t begin until June 15, and summer camps can now open.
