ALABAMA CLOTHING PLANT GETS DEEP CLEAN AMID VIRUS CONCERNS
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – A clothing manufacturing plant in Alabama has undergone a deep cleaning after two employees there tested positive for the new coronavirus.
A top executive says the American Apparel plant in Selma is scheduled to reopen Monday.
Workers walked out of the plant Thursday because of safety concerns about the virus. In the next few days, Republican Gov. Kay Ivey is expected to announce her plans for reopening parts of the state economy.
The Alabama Department of Public Health said Sunday that the state had more than 6,250 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and more than 210 deaths from it.
