MONTGOMERY - On Friday, Governor Kay Ivey is issuing a limited, narrowly-focused state of emergency based on the surge in Covid-19 cases being experienced in an effort to support Alabama’s frontline heroes and cut red tape.
According to a press release from Ivey’s office, this will allow the state’s healthcare community greater flexibility to offer care for patients coming through their doors as the state’s vaccination push continues.
The governor’s office said the proclamation would relax regulatory burdens to allow expanded capacity in healthcare facilities, additional liability protections, increased authority for frontline health care personnel and easier shipment of emergency equipment and supplies.
