The American economic landscape has changed considerably over the past few months as Coronavirus (COVID-19) has extremely halted activity across the country. Several weeks have passed since Alabama’s economy slowly began to reopen following a phased approach with the amended Safer at Home public health order.

Although these practices prevented many from falling sick, Coronavirus remains a threat to the health and well-being of Alabamians and the American people.
