MONTGOMERY Governor Kay Ivey on Thursday, November 5 issued her nineteenth supplemental emergency proclamation containing an amended Safer at Home Order that includes a statewide mask requirement in a joint press conference with  State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris.


Individuals will be required to wear a mask or other facial covering when in public and in close contact with other people, as described in the order. This amended order extends until Friday, December 11, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.

The governor says an exception to social-distancing rules will be allowed for many businesses. That means barber shops, hair salons, gyms and restaurants have an exception to the rules if people are wearing masks and separated by an “impermeable” barrier.

Masks will still be required in schools and in public when interacting within 6 feet with people of another household.
