County orders 24-hour curfew, quarantine

In an attempt to curb the spread of COVID-19, Marion County's commission and probate judge's offices have issued a 24-hour public safety curfew and countywide at-home quarantine.
The order comes in the wake of Gov. Kay Ivey ordering non-essential businesses to close to the public and schools to finish the 2019-2020 school year from home.
The curfew and quarantine went into effect Monday, March 30, at 5 p.m. and is scheduled through Friday, April 17, at 5 p.m.
According to a draft of the official document, the measure is a "forced isolation and restriction of free movement" of individuals within the county.
