Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey Announces 'Safer Apart' Order, Lifts Statewide Mask Mandate


Alabama Governor Kay Ivey (R) announced the ‘Safer Apart’ order Thursday, making face masks optional in the state after April 9, an indication that the Yellowhammer State is moving in the right direction.

“As I’ve previously stated, Alabama’s mask order will expire at 5 p.m. on April 9,” Ivey stated in a tweet. “Today, I’m announcing our state will then enter into our Safer Apart order, which will be in effect until May 5 at 5 p.m.”

Folks, we still have a public health order, but it’s greatly slimmed down due to everyone doing their part to practice social distancing, wearing a mask, & voluntarily getting a vaccine. I continue to encourage you to do all of these things & make smart decisions. #alpolitics 3/8
