Grow Southeast Alabama COVID-19 Resources

This page is designed to help employers and workforce in Southeast Alabama respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Information is changing often, and updates will be made on this site daily. We will provide the most up-to-date information available, but we ask readers to rely on official sources first and foremost and we will repost much of that information on this webpage. Our national, state, and local public health agencies are confident that the best strategy to protect our population from further spread of the virus is social distancing—avoid large gatherings and maintain a physical distance of approximately 6 feet from others when possible.

Support Local Businesses

We understand the following weeks will be difficult for many of our local businesses and employees. We encourage citizens to continue to support local businesses. Below are a few constructive ways to support local and small businesses at this time.

  • Buy gift cards or certificates: A little here and there can hold small businesses over
  • Shop online: Check Facebook, Instagram, and other social media outlets for business websites or stores
  • Order from restaurants with Delivery, Drive-Thru, Carry-Out, or Curbside Pick-up options
  • Tip generously
  • If you are a business with employees working extended hours, consider bringing in meals from a local restaurant.
