Ivey issued an amended safer-at-home order that includes a statewide mask requirement until 5 p.m. Dec. 11.

Gov. Kay Ivey issued her 19th supplemental emergency proclamation this morning containing an amended safer-at-home Order that includes a statewide mask requirement.

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 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11.

Most everything is staying the same but some things did change in the order:

  • Emergency occupancy rates will be removed for retailers, gyms and fitness centers and entertainment venues

  • An exception to social distancing rules will be allowed for many businesses including barber shops, hair salons, gyms and restaurants if people are wearing masks and separated by an impermeable barrier
