MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she intends to keep a stay-home order in place through April, striking a measured approach as some Southern states push to quickly reopen.

Ivey said Tuesday that she intends – for now – to keep a stay home order in place through April 30.

State Health Officer Scott Harris said the state has not quite met a federal recommendation of 14 days of declining cases before proceeding to an additional phase of reopening.

A crowd of 100 or more protesters gathered outside the Alabama Capitol Tuesday to urge the lifting of closure orders.
