Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is extending the order requiring facial coverings in public places until Nov. 8.
The governor announced the extension at a press conference today in Montgomery.
Ivey and State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris issued the mask order effective July 16 as the state saw increasing numbers of coronavirus cases. The order was extended twice, most recently on Aug. 27, and was set to expire Friday. It is now extended through Sunday, Nov. 8.
Ivey mentioned the national election as one reason for extending the order past Nov. 3.
I want everyone to (vote) and to be able to do it safely," she said, adding that Alabamas coronavirus case numbers saw consistent decline after the mask order was instituted.

Amazing what has happened to my former state, where I was born. The cookie baking grandma governor doesn’t know what she is doing. I always wonder how she ever became governor.
Just make it permanent already.
I live in NE Alabama and don’t wear a mask as don’t many store operators. I have yet to have anyone say anything about it either.
Makes sense. Given how “judges” have been extending the timeframe for returned mail-in ballots, might as well extend beyond Nov 3, and align it with the new fraud-return dates.
Politicians at the behest of Democrats are extending Mask Orders past Election Day. This is being done on purpose to fulfill Democrats agenda.
the stores that were like that one by one are being visited by the powers that be.
give it a little time
Republican Gov Ducey in AZ is now going for mandatory masks through “flu season”, to combat influenza.
Ever notice how unsteady and sort of palsied she seems to be? Not that Bentley was the pick of the litter, either.
I wear a Medic Alert bracelet that you’d need a Funk & Wagnalls to decipher. Nobody’s said a word to me, either, but the second they do, they’re getting an education.
Why are people getting tested if they are not sick?? All it does is allow the totalitarin tyrants to use that info to practice their Tyranny.
PA Governor Wolf just got caught on a hot mic admitting that masks are political theater.
All males should be required to wear a condom at all times too. This would prevent a lot of STDs.
Since the anti-America/destroy America global socialist DNC left, (with their many black robes) are dead set to just decree election related laws, and pushing so hard to circumvent our legislated election laws — the alchemist in me is starting to think POTUS Trump should strategically announce he has both decided follow in the footsteps of Obama, and as well, to follow Democrat judges election lead in circumventing the “legislative process”, and will now go around a “dead-beat” congress, announcing “Election Day” is changed to some date in the future... like maybe December 7th.
Enforcement depends on the area. A lot of people got away with no masks in Huntington, Pennsylvania back in July, not sure what the situation is now, but then masks were just recommended not required. Me being from the Philadelphia area walked into a store and I was the only one wearing one. But no one gave me weird looks and that was nice.
Get this worthless hag out of office.
Question for Alabama Freepers. Assuming there are state legislative races on the ballot, is reigning in the governor’s emergency powers an issue?
Idiots , The people are getting tired of the mask ,and aren’t wear them. Even half the wally-world employees don’t wear them......
That’s hilarious! Good thing Kay Ivey doesn’t have the power to make gestation longer (poor Kate McKenna)! She has nothing to lose doing this - except ticking off the good people of the state of Alabama and making us all more vulnerable. No need to take a flu shot because of social distancing, masking, and this ridiculous Howard Hughes hand washing. Comes on the same day the alcohol board allows bars to stay open longer.
