Alabama Governor Kay Ivey’s statewide mask mandate is set to expire on Friday, April 9.
The City of Birmingham, however, has chosen to extend its mask mandate until Monday, May 24.
In any event, the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) and the Governor continue to encourage the wearing of masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
While the vaccination rates are steadily increasing every day, there is a large portion of our state population who are still waiting or have made the choice to not get vaccinated. Until herd immunity is achieved, ADPH reminds us that masks remain one of the most successful tools to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Because the safety of our employees and members is our top priority, Legacy will continue to require our employees to wear a mask while at work, maintain 6 feet social distancing and keep every other teller window closed with plexiglass at the remaining windows and offices.
For those locations where the local government has extended the mandatory mask order, our mandate requiring a mask to enter our premises will remain in effect.
However, in locations with no mask mandate in place, we still encourage and request members wear masks in our facilities.
