Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said Tuesday the current stay-at-home order will not be extended beyond Thursday, April 30.
Ivey said she will instead issue a safer-at-home order that will go into effect at 6 p.m. ET Thursday.
Under the new order, all employers, retail stores and beaches will be allowed to open subject to good sanitation and social distancing rules, the governor said.
Ivey said the state is not out of the woods.
She encouraged all Alabamians to stay home and follow good sanitation practices.
