Alabama and Missouri orders citizens to quarantine

Govs. Kay Ivey and Mike Parson had previously resisted calls by medical and health experts who have been urging lawmakers to take immediate action.

The governors of Alabama and Missouri on Friday announced stay-at-home orders, leaving only a handful of state holdouts that continue to defy expert advice to self-quarantine to contain the spread of the coronavirus pandemic as cases continue to rise.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said the order there will take effect at 5 p.m. on Saturday and run through 5 p.m. on April 30.

Gov. Mike Parson said the Missouri order will start later and end earlier.

“I don’t understand why it’s not happening,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Thursday on CNN. Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Carolina and South Dakota have yet to implement statewide stay-at-home orders.

Ivey and Parson said the new orders tell all residents to refrain from spending unnecessary time outside except for “Essential activities” and that they take reasonable steps to maintain six feet of separation when they must leave their homes.

Parson’s announcement in Missouri came as the state surpassed 2,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and the death toll reached 19.
