MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) — With much of the state reopening Monday, some members of the governor’s coronavirus task force do not agree with the plan to reopen the state.
On Friday, Gov. Kay Ivey gave business owners some news they’ve demanding to hear.
“People are frustrated,” Ivey said. “I understand. I care about you.”
Not all members of the task force agree with this plan to reopen.
“It scares me, it literally scares me, because we’ve not done enough testing,” said Sen. Bobby Singleton, D-Greensboro.
Singleton said he’s concerned about employees that will be headed back to work.
“We have to remember, in the state of Alabama, we work. People, not robots, and even robots get viruses,” he said.
Meanwhile, House Speaker Mac McCutcheon, R-Huntsville, applauded the governor on the plan and hopes businesses will comply.
