To an emergency.

We wanted to know how some businesses in north alabama are responding to the order.

Waay 31's shosh bedrosian is live in downtown decatur and spoke with a local business about the impact of the shutdown.

This shutdown is now limiting even more places to go if you are stuck at home and is hurting more businesses in the area.

Hair salons, barber shops, massage services, and spas are just some of the types of establishments that will be closed to non- employees until april 17th.

Today i spoke with the general manager of a local restaurant in decatur who told me he is seeing a big decrease in business and profits already, even though his restaurant is still able to operate under the governor's new order.

Taylor jones, general manager at b.b.

Perrin's "it's a bit detrimental but we have a lot of great customers that are rallying around us and ordering food and continuing to come and support the staff."

Shosh "so a shelter in please wouldn't be ideal for you?"

"a shelter in place is not an ideal situation" these new orders were put into place by governor ivey after the department of public health confirmed 3 deaths in 2 days from the coronavirus in alabama.

Two of those deaths happened here in north alabama.

But ivey still says there's no need for a stay in shelter order.

The chief nursing officer at decatur morgan hospital hopes/isn't sure it's the right decision.

Anita waldon, chief nursing officer at decatur-morgan hospital "people need to take this seriously and understand that they are in control of the spread of the virus so stay at home.

If you don't have to get out, stay at home" that's the message everyone is sharing... stay home unless you have to go out.
