COVID-19 Cases in Montgomery County

As COVID-19 continues to spread across the globe and across our state, city leaders have taken proactive steps, but we need the public to do their part by washing their hands, practicing social distancing, cancelling events where large crowds are expected and listening to the recommendations of the ADPH and CDC professionals. Our goal is to slow the spread of this virus so that our healthcare system is not overburdened. Please remain vigilant and make smart decisions as we tackle this together.

Latest state guidelines permit Montgomery close-contact service providers and eat-in

Post Date:05/11/2020 9:32 AM

MONTGOMERY – Governor Kay Ivey’s Safer at Home state public health order as amended May 8, 2020, will allow most businesses to reopen in Montgomery beginning at 5 p.m. Monday.

“As businesses reopen, it is important that we all take proper precautions and be as safe as possible,” Montgomery Mayor Steven L. Reed said. “We have an increasing number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in Montgomery County, and we are leaving our emergency order of March 14 in effect, along with our 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Montgomery and adjust local action depending on whether the conditions get better or worse.”

The governor’s amended order allows the resumption of operations for a variety of establishments considered close-contact service providers, including entertainment venues, gyms, athletic facilities, barber shops, salons, spas, body art and tattoo facilities, massage therapy spaces and houses of worship. Restaurants will be allowed to reopen at a 50 percent occupancy rate with six feet of spacing between tables and other guidance that has been agreed upon by the Alabama Restaurant and Hospitality Association. However, state health officials stressed they will be under strict guidance to practice intense cleaning methods and social distancing efforts.
