How many people can I go to the beach with? 

So, the state has determined that it is ok for people to visit the beach, but any gatherings must still be limited. Per the information produced by the State of Alabama, groups must be limited to no more than 10 people. Members of the same household can gather together, but everyone else must stay at least six feet apart.  

Are pools now available to be used? 

Publicly available pools that you might find at apartments, condominiums and hotels will now be available for use. However, those facilities will have the same rules in place as the beaches mentioned above. Members of the same family can be together at pools, but outsiders must maintain proper social distancing.

When will things go back to normal? 

Information about moving beyond COVID-19 restrictions is constantly shifting. As of right now, there is no real way to tell when things will completely go back to normal. Pay attention to your local news sources, TV, radio and newspapers for the most up to date information.
