GOVERNOR: ALABAMA AGENCIES CAN ALLOW WORKERS TO STAY HOME

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama’s governor is giving state agencies permission to allow their employees to work from home.

Gov. Kay Ivey said on Twitter Sunday that employees should plan to return to regular work schedules on April 6.

Alabama has 22 confirmed cases of coronavirus as of Sunday night, according to the Alabama Department of Public Health.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia. The vast majority of people recover from the new virus.
