On Friday April 9th, Governor Kay Ivey transitioned Alabama's "Safer at Home" policy to the new "Safer Apart" policy.  Masks will no longer be mandated statewide, but individuals are strongly encouraged to wear a mask or other facial covering when in public and in close contact with other people. This order goes into effect at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 9, 2021 and extends until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 5, 2021.

Our beaches are open.  Our pools and other resort amenities are open.  Local restaurants are all open and operating at 100%.  Life at the beach is starting to feel very normal again.  We have businesses throughout our state that may require masks so you will want to bring one during your trip for the retail shops and statewide businesses that still require a mask.
