Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey announced a statewide stay-at-home order effective Saturday afternoon.
"My fellow Alabamians, I want to get straight to the point. Effective tomorrow afternoon at 5 p.m., I am mandating a stay-at-home order for the entire state," Ivey said during a press conference Friday afternoon in Montgomery.
Before Friday, Alabama was one of the few states that had yet to issue a stay-at-home order.
Alabama has at least 1,349 cases of coronavirus and at least 34 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
