Continued Face Coverings Encouraged to Fight Spread of COVID-19

Even after Alabama’s statewide face covering order ends on April 9, the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners is encouraging people to continue to mask up.

“There is no doubt that face coverings have saved lives.  We encourage everyone to continue to wear face coverings, practice social distancing and frequently wash their hands.  This is important for your safety and the protection of others,” said Dr. Mark LeQuire, Chairman of the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners.  “Alabama has come so far in the fight against COVID-19 and we need to continue these safety precautions until many more Alabamians have been vaccinated.”
