TUSCALOOSA FOLLOWING STATE’S LEAD, PRESENTING REOPENING PLAN APRIL 28

Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox says he’ll be presenting a plan April 28 on how Tuscaloosa will reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Currently, Tuscaloosa under the state’s stay-at-home order that expires April 30. Gov. Kay Ivey is releasing statewide plans April 28 as well.

Maddox said April 17 during a Virtual Town Hall meeting that the city is working on a plan for reopening businesses that were closed during the stay-at-home order.

The city released a statement Monday saying the plan will be looked at by medical professionals from DCH Health System, UAB Hospital and other institutions.

Maddox’s goal is preventing a second wave of COVID-19 from happening after businesses open up and residents begin moving around the city again.
